Bobbi Parker, Warden's Wife, Faces Prison Time


prosecutors alleged Parker fell in love with Dial and ran off with him on Aug. 30, 1994, when her husband was deputy warden of the prison in Granite. Defense attorneys maintained that Dial drugged her, kidnapped her at knifepoint and held her hostage for more than a decade by threatening to use his alleged mob connections to harm her family if she tried to flee.

Thoughts?

Stockholm's syndrome kind've strains credulity. Was her kidnapping a material element of the escape? If so, why take the risk on keeping her around.....

I don't know about this one. If she really was kidnapped ok but was it just a ploy?
