12-member Jury Seated in Warden's Wife's Trial (Jun 30, 2011)

MANGUM, Okla. (AP) — A Greer County prosecutor says a 12-member jury has been selected for the wife of a former prison warden who allegedly fell in love with an inmate and aided his escape.

Assistant District Attorney Eric Yarborough said Thursday the jury and three alternate jurors were chosen for the trial of 48-year-old Bobbi Parker, who is charged with assisting a prisoner to escape. Jury selection in the case began on May 16.

Yarborough says prosecution and defense attorneys will present their opening statements on Tuesday.

Parker is accused of helping convicted killer Randolph Dial break out of the Oklahoma State Reformatory in 1994. Defense lawyers say Dial kidnapped Parker and held her hostage until she was rescued in Texas in 2005.

Parker was charged in 2008. She has pleaded not guilty.
