Nichols Hills attorney suspected of helping client/boyfriend escape
Oklahoma woman's brother alerted police, who recaptured the drug offender.
An attorney who wanted to marry a client is suspected of helping him escape from a correctional facility, police say.
Amy Lynn McTeer, 39, also is suspected of harboring convicted drug offender Roy G. Kuykendall, 35, at her $335,000 Nichols Hills home. Police officers searched her home Friday and seized her iPhone and other evidence.
Police allege she used her iPhone to post a photo on her Facebook page of her and the escapee together after he walked away from the Union City Community Corrections Facility on July 9.
Kuykendall was captured at lunchtime July 10 at Texadelphia, a Bricktown grill, Oklahoma City police reported. He was with McTeer and had her car keys in his pocket.
She told Oklahoma City police officers he claimed he had been released from prison.
She said she did not know he had escaped. She said they intended on getting married the next day, according to a crime report.
She had “ROY” tattooed on one of her fingers, an Oklahoma City officer reported.
Brother called police
Her brother alerted police, according to the report. He had called corrections officials and confirmed Kuykendall was a fugitive.
The brother told police she had been hanging around with Kuykendall for the past day or so and her behavior had been extremely unusual.
Nichols Hills police reported that officials at the Union City facility found a recording of a phone call between McTeer and Kuykendall planning his escape.
McTeer represented Kuykendall in a 2008 drug case in Beckham County. He pleaded guilty and was serving nine years in prison. He had about 870 days left, an official at the Union City facility said.
