He married Laurie Bandel of Rochester, Minn., last April while he was married for a dozen years to Willie Henderson of Racine.

Those two split a couple years ago, but they got back together and renewed their marriage vows.

When she learned that Bandel married him, Willie Henderson called authorities.

Michael was living with Willie when he was arrested and extradited to Minnesota a few weeks ago. She filed for divorce earlier this month.

No date has been set for his sentencing.
