A woman accused of trying to free the 15-year-old suspect in Bob Stoops' home burglary case has been charged with the crime of assisting a prisoner to escape.

Paige Nicole Maurey, 20, of Tuttle, is accused in the felony count of acting in concert with four juveniles to try and help Anthony Adams David Jr., of Moore, escape from the Alan J. Couch Juvenile Detention Center.

David and Corey McCarty, 21, are accused of breaking into Stoops' house June 19 while family members were asleep inside. The two also are accused of stealing an SUV and credit cards.

According to a Cleveland County District Court affidavit, Maurey and another juvenile dropped off three juvenile males at the Alan J. Couch Detention Center on July 2. Maurey told investigators the plan was for the three juveniles to use hedge trimmers to cut a hole in a chain-link fence at the juvenile detention center.

The affidavit states Maurey told investigators David was her boyfriend and that he had asked her to help him escape. According to the affidavit, Maurey said she and a female juvenile drove around while the others were supposed to be cutting the fence. When she returned to pick them up, she said, police officers were there.

McCarty has been charged in Cleveland County District Court with felony counts of first-degree burglary, larceny of an automobile and unauthorized use of a credit card. David's case is being prosecuted in juvenile court, where he faces charges of first-degree burglary and larceny of an automobile.

Both McCarty and David remained in custody Wednesday. Maurey was released after posting $15,000 bail.
