Judge says Oregon mystery man can wed in jail
PORTLAND, Ore. — A judge has given an Oregon man accused of assuming the name of a slain Ohio toddler approval to get married in jail.
Identified in May as Bulgarian-born Doitchin Krasev, the man recently sought permission to wed in a Multnomah County, Ore., jail. He was arrested in April and is being held there on a federal charge of falsifying a passport application. He also faces identity theft charges in Ohio.
U.S. Magistrate Judge John Acosta has given the OK and will permit a minister or other official authorized by the jail to perform the ceremony.
Krasev’s bride-to-be hasn’t been identified in court papers. Jail officials say it will be up to her to obtain a marriage license.
Authorities say Krasev, a former Oregon Liquor Control Commission inspector, claimed to be Jason Robert Evers, who was kidnapped and killed in Cincinnati in 1982 at age 3.
