Authorities in Arizona have charged two women with helping convicted felons after they escaped from prison in the northwestern part of the state.
The Arizona Attorney General's Office on Monday charged 42-year-old Diana Joy Glattfelder and 68-year-old Claudia Washburn with hindering prosecution and conspiracy to commit escape.
Glattfelder lives in Prescott Valley and is the ex-wife of escapee John McCluskey. Washburn, of Payson, is McCluskey's mother. Both are accused of providing money, supplies or transportation to the inmates and their alleged accomplice, Casslyn Welch.
It was not clear if the women had attorneys.
Three violent inmates escaped from a prison near Kingman last month. Two have been captured but authorities say McCluskey is still on the run with Welch.
