Cincinnati police say William Lawson had two wives and one of them learned about the other on Facebook.

But he landed in the Hamilton County jail Monday facing several other charges including burglary, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, theft, assault, domestic violence, misuse of a credit card. 

In cases dating back to 2013, Lawson, 39, is accused of marrying Britni Chantel Lindley four months before his September 2013 divorce was granted from his previous wife, Sharon Lawson of Springfield Township.

The couple had been separated for about a year when he married again in May 2013. 

Two months later, Sharon Lawson was on Facebook when she discovered her husband had married again in Hamilton County. She said she saw pictures of his wedding and marriage license, court records show.
