A former Bulloch County man apparently thought two wives were better than one when he married a woman without divorcing his first wife, authorities said. Eli Demetrius Porter, 26, who now lives on Magnolia Boulevard in Port Wentworth, obtained a marriage license from the Bulloch County Probate Court earlier this year to marry Shanice Sharda Brown, 24, who also now lives in Port Wentworth, said Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson in a news release issued Tuesday. The couple were living in Bulloch County at the time, but recently moved to Port Wentworth, he said.
