Jury Selection Resumes in Trial of Warden's Wife (Jun 27, 2011)

MANGUM, Okla. (AP) — Jury selection has resumed for the wife of a former prison warden who is accused of helping an inmate she allegedly fell in love with escape.

Bobbi Parker is charged with assisting a prisoner to escape for allegedly helping Randolph Dial break out of the Oklahoma State Reformatory in Granite in August 1994. Parker's husband, Randy Parker, was deputy warden at the prison at the time.

Defense attorneys maintain that Bobbi Parker was kidnapped and stayed with Dial for almost 11 years for fear he would harm her family. Parker and Dial were found at a chicken ranch in Campti, Texas, in 2005.

She has pleaded not guilty.

Jury selection in the case resumed Monday in Greer County District Court. Parker faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
