Opening statements set for former warden's wife

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - More than 200 witnesses have been subpoenaed to testify in the trial of Bobbi Parker. They'll help prosecutors and defense lawyers tell their stories of the wife of an Oklahoma prison warden who is accused of helping in the escape of an inmate with whom she allegedly fell in love.

Parker's trial is scheduled to begin Tuesday in Greer County, where lawyers spent seven weeks working to pick 12 jurors, plus three alternates.

The 48-year-old Parker is charged with assisting a prisoner to escape for allegedly helping Randolph Dial break out of Oklahoma State Reformatory in the state's far southwest 17 years ago, and living with him for a decade.

Parker's lawyer says Dial had kidnapped her and held her hostage. Dial, who died in 2007, served life for murder.
