SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — A 27-year-old Louisiana man is accused of filing false divorce papers, and his 50-year-old girlfriend is accused of forging the man’s wife’s name on them.

Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator says the wife found legal documents showing that she had been granted a divorce she had never requested. A news release Thursday quotes Detective Mike King as saying the wife didn’t know of the proceedings or want to divorce her husband.

The statement says Demario Clark of Shreveport was arrested on a charge of filing false public records, and Lisa McKinney was arrested on a charge of forgery.
