NEWBERRY, S.C. (AP) — A Newberry man has been charged with bigamy after officials discovered he has married four times since 1988 without divorcing any of the women.

Newberry County Sheriff Lee Foster said 49-year-old Darnell Pixley was charged on a single count and surrendered to deputies Wednesday. Foster says the investigation is continuing.

The sheriff said Pixley married a woman in Edgefield County in 1988. He also married a woman in Richland County in 2008, a woman in Sumter County in 2011 and a woman in Newberry County last November.

It was not clear if Pixley has an attorney.
