PV woman pleads guilty in prison escape case

PRESCOTT - A Prescott Valley woman accused of helping her ex-husband after he escaped from a northwestern Arizona prison has pleaded guilty to attempting to hinder prosecution.

The Arizona Attorney General's Office says 43-year-old Diana Joy Glattfelder entered her plea Tuesday in Yavapai County Superior Court. A sentencing date hasn't been set.

She's the ex-wife of John McCluskey, who escaped with two other convicts from a private prison near Kingman on July 30. Glattfelder was accused of providing money, supplies or transportation to the inmates and their alleged accomplice.

McCluskey and Tracy Province have been charged with murder in the Aug. 2 deaths of an Oklahoma couple whose charred bodies were found in a camper in Santa Rosa, N.M.

McCluskey was captured Aug. 19 at a campground near Sunrise Ski Resort in Arizona's Apache County. Province was captured Aug. 9 in Wyoming.
