A 55-year-old Jewish man suspected of bigamy will be brought before the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court for a remand extension hearing. The man is suspected of marrying five women and neglecting both his biological and step children, as well as sexually abusing his 16-year-old step daughter. Police made the arrest Thursday following an undercover investigation, which was opened following a tip-off by welfare authorities.
