A fourth suspected wife of polygamous cult leader Samuel Bateman has been indicted on allegations that she made interstate threats and engaged in cyberstalking.

Federal prosecutors disclosed that a grand jury indicted Josephine Barlow Bistline in a filing in her husband’s case last Tuesday.

“On April 4, 2023, a grand jury returned an indictment charging Josephine Barlow Bistline, a.k.a. Jomie B, who is also believed to be one of Bateman’s wives, with one count of interstate communications involving a threat and one count of cyberstalking,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Dimitra Sampson wrote in a three-page motion.

With that disclosure, Bistline joins three of Bateman’s other wives on the criminal docket of the District of Arizona: Naomi Bistline, Donnae Barlow, and Moretta Rose Johnson.
