A MAN is to stand trial for bigamy after being accused of setting up home with a second ‘wife’.

Shahed Mahmood, from Mayfield, pleaded not guilty when the case called at Livingston Sheriff Court.

The 44-year-old denies bigamously marrying Jennifer Blackwood at wedding venue The Vu, near Bathgate, on March 13, 2011.

Mahmood also denies that the marriage took place while he was still the lawful husband of Mrs Safia Mahmood. Sheriff Susan Craig adjourned the case until March.
