Jury Hears Audio at Warden's Wife's Trial (Jul 19, 2011)

MANGUM, Okla. (AP) — A convicted killer said in a tape recorded interview that he kidnapped the wife of a former Oklahoma prison warden and that she did not help him escape.

The recording of the now-dead Randolph Dial was played Tuesday in the trial of Bobbi Parker on a charge that she helped Dial escape the Oklahoma State Reformatory in 1994. Parker's husband — Randy Parker — was the prison's deputy warden.

Dial described Parker as a victim that he kidnapped at knifepoint.

Prosecutors say Parker fell in love with Dial helped him escape. The defense says Parker was kidnapped and that she stayed with Dial out of fear he would harm her family.

The recording was made after the two were found living in Campti, Texas, in 2005. Dial died in 2007.
