MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Convicted auto mogul Denny Hecker and his girlfriend have gotten married, but the county attorney’s office is investigating whether the marriage is legit.

Hecker’s daughter Kelly says the family’s pastor conducted a ceremony Feb. 22, with Hecker on the telephone from his cell at Sherburne County Jail and girlfriend Christi Rowan at a Maple Grove church.

But a spokesman says the Hennepin County Attorney’s office is investigating the marriage license.

Rowan was arrested the day after the wedding and is now also in the Sherburne County Jail. She was supposed to be sentenced last Friday for her role in helping Hecker hide assets from bankruptcy creditors. But after her arrest a judge rejected her plea deal and postponed sentencing.

Hecker is serving a 10-year federal prison sentence for conspiracy and bankruptcy fraud.
