MALE `WIFE' STILL IN JAIL AFTER BAIL IS SLASHED

Felix Urioste, accused of posing as a woman to dupe a Bountiful man into a 31/2-year marriage, remained in jail late Friday, three days after a judge slashed his bail.

Urioste's attorney, Marlin Criddle, said that despite what is now a $5,000 bail, his client had been unable to find someone to guarantee he will appear in court.Urioste, 34, has pleaded not guilty and is scheduled for trial Sept. 27.

Prosecutors allege Urioste defrauded his "husband," Bruce Jensen, 39, of more than $40,000 after Jensen, believing Urioste was female and pregnant, married him in December 1991.
