A Mesa woman is accused of helping a group of inmates escape a privately run prison in Kingman. 44-year-old Casslyn Mae Welch is the fiancee and cousin of escapee John McCluskey.

He and Tracy Province are still on the run, along with a man named Thomas Henman.

Welch allegedly threw a wire cutter over the prison fence and drove the getaway car. One inmate was caught Sunday.
