Bobbi Parker preliminary hearing begins

Mangum_A prison official's wife is the subject of a preliminary hearing to determine whether she should be tried on charges she helped a convicted killer escape from a state correctional facility 14 years ago.  The hearing was set for Monday in the Greer County Courthouse in far western Oklahoma. 

Bobbi Parker is accused of helping Randolph Dial escape from the Oklahoma State Reformatory in Granite, where her husband was deputy warden.  Parker and dial were found living at an east Texas chicken ranch on April 4, 2005.  Dial died in prison last year at age 62.

Parker claimed Dial abducted her and she stayed with him all those years because she was afraid of what he would do to her family.
