BIGAMIST PLOTS TO WED WIFE NO.3
By Billy Paterson
An internet rat is to wed a pretty Norwegian he met on the web - despite being married to TWO other women.
Weedy bigamist Kenneth Robertson snares his victims by posting pictures of hunky male models on internet chatrooms and pretending they are him.
Wives Jean Robertson, 37, of Cumnock, Ayrshire, and Donna Dettling, 46, of Seattle, USA, believe he kept TEN women on the go at the same time while married to them.
Robertson, 39, wed childhood sweetheart Jean in Cumnock Congregational Church in 1987. They had three daughters - but after he got his first computer in the late 90s, she became suspicious about the time he spent surfing the net.
Behind her back he seduced and then married American mum-of-four Donna and now he wants to marry Norwegian Elizabeth Kjaerland.
Jean warned : "He is going for wife No3. I have decided to go to the police and report him for bigamy. This woman Elizabeth doesn't want me to do that but why shouldn't I?"After chatting Donna up on the net, Robertson went to Seattle and met her. They married at Thurston County Courthouse, Washington State, in September 2003.
Donna said: "I used to feel I was the most stupid person in the universe. But that title has been passed to Elizabeth. She knows he is a bigamist but still thinks he can do no wrong. I hope she will read this in the Sunday Mail and finally see sense. People ask me, 'What were you thinking, getting involved with a guy like that?' But I had just got out of a 10-year marriage. He knows your soft spots and how to manipulate you. The women he has been involved with through the internet are all mothers and that is no coincidence. He posted a picture of a hunk who turned out to be model Marcus Shenkenberg. But as soon as I heard his voice I knew it wasn't him. He has this weak, wimpy voice. You don't care what he looks like because at first he seems such a great guy."Robertson visited Donna in Seattle in October 2002.
She said: "He told me that he was divorced and I had no reason to doubt him. We were married on September 8, 2003.I now know he is still married to Jean. After the marriage, things changed. He was mentally, verbally, emotionally and physically abusive. A detective dealing with the violence discovered that he was in the US illegally. He came over on a 90-day visa and thought, because we were married, he could stay. But the detective said that didn't matter."
At his flat in Coatbridge, Robertson refused to comment before fiance Elizabeth slammed the door.
