Prosecutors in Utah, who have been investigating potential bigamy charges against Sister Wives stars Kody Brown and his four wives, have a message for fans of the TLC reality show: stay tuned.
"We're in no rush to get this filed," says Donna Kelly, a deputy county attorney for Utah County. "You can expect a decision in the next 60 to 90 days."
Police in Lehi, Utah, where the Brown family lives, wrapped up their investigation on Oct.20 and turned over their findings to county prosecutors.

Sister Wives star Kody Brown is used to chaos. After all, he has four wives and 16 kids. But now that Utah authorities are pondering charging him with felony bigamy, Brown is definitely feeling the heat.
"I just hope," Brown tells PEOPLE in its new issue, "they don't put me in jail for loving four women."
Since going public on TLC's Sister Wives about his polygamist lifestyle, the affable 42-year-old ad salesman has found himself at the center of a legal showdown that could land him in prison for up to five years.
Last week, Lehi, Utah, police submitted their findings to the Utah County Attorney, who has yet to decide whether to charge Brown with a crime.

Police in Utah have wrapped up an investigation into the Sister Wives stars for potential felony polygamy and submitted the case to prosecutors to decide whether to file charges.
The case focuses on Kody Brown and his wives Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn, whose lives are depicted on the TLC reality show that premiered last month.
The Utah County Attorney's Office received the case from Lehi, Utah, police on Monday. Polygamy cases are extremely rare in the state and authorities say this one was prompted by the publicity from the show. The maximum penalty for felony polygamy is five years in prison.

Kody Brown and his four wives may live uniquely to the people who watch their show on TLC. But the stars of Sister Wives insist they're a totally normal household.
"We're a family, just like any other family," Janelle Brown, 41, tells PEOPLE. "[We have] struggles and we love our kids, and we want our kids to be happy."
Still, their children have mixed feelings about cameras capturing their everyday lives.
