2 more jurors chosen for warden's wife's trial

MANGUM, Okla. (AP) - More prospective jurors have been chosen for possible service in the trial of a former warden's wife accused of aiding the escape of a prison inmate with whom she fell in love.

Prosecutors have accused Bobbi Parker of helping Randolph Dial escape from the Oklahoma State Reformatory in 1994 and then running away with him. Defense attorneys say Dial kidnapped Parker and held her captive until she was rescued in 2005 at a Texas chicken ranch.

Defense attorney lawyer Garvin Isaacs said Friday two more people were added to a panel of prospective jurors that now totals 18.

Isaacs says attorneys plan to pick 22 prospective jurors before using challenges to seat a 12-member jury. He says officials also plan to select four alternate jurors.

The selection process resumes Monday.
