Attorney: Okla. Warden's Wife's To Continue Appeal

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The defense attorney for a former Oklahoma prison warden's wife found guilty of helping a convicted killer escape said he will continue to appeal the case in spite of the U.S. Supreme Court's refusal to review it.

The nation's highest court rejected a request to decide whether Bobbi Parker is indigent and unable to afford the cost of a transcript of her four-month-long trial so she can appeal the conviction. But defense attorney Garvin Isaacs said Wednesday he will file a new round of appeals in federal court.

A Greer County jury last year convicted Parker of helping Randolph Franklin Dial escape from the Oklahoma State Reformatory 18 years ago. Parker was sentenced to one year in prison and served about six months before she was released for good behavior.
