WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A south-central Missouri jailer is accused of having a sexual relationship with one of two inmates who bolted last weekend from the lockup and remain missing.

The Springfield News-Leader (http://sgfnow.co/2cibeKo ) reports that 22-year-old Angelica Black was charged Sunday with sexual contact with a prisoner by a jail employee.

Authorities say Black was working at the Pulaski County lockup when she had a relationship with 27-year-old Dustin Richardson.

Richardson and 32-year-old James Randall "J.R." Sherrell escaped from the jail in Waynesville early Sunday. Sherrell was being held on suspicion of drug possession and interfering with an arrest. Richardson had been jailed on a child-molestation charge.

Black as of Monday had not been accused of assisting in the escape. Online court records did not show whether she has an attorney.
