OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City police say a Nichols Hills attorney posted photos of herself and her boyfriend on Facebook just hours after he escaped from prison.

Roy Kuykendall escaped from Union City Correction Facility sometime the night of July 9. Police say his girlfriend, attorney Amy McTeer, helped him escape. Investigators listened to a phone call between McTeer and Kuykendall, and heard the two hatching an escape plan.

Jerry Massie, a spokesperson for the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, says Kuykendall just walked away from the correctional center. The facility is not secure, and prisoners can come and go for work. Prison employees discovered Kuykendall was missing during a head count.

Kuykendall was arrested less than a day after his escape. Oklahoma City police found him in a Bricktown restaurant having lunch with McTeer. Police say when they confronted the couple, McTeer lied about Kuykendall's identity.

Police say McTeer later told them she and Kuykendall planned to get married.

Investigators say during Kuykendall's few hours of freedom, McTeer took pictures of them together and uploaded them to her Facebook page. Investigators say those pictures may provide enough evidence to charge McTeer with harboring a fugitive.

News 9 tried to contact McTeer, but there was no answer at her Nichols Hills home, or her office.
