The adoption grandmother of a 16-year-old girl from Iowa who was starving is confronted with new allegations of trying to escape from prison where she was serving 20 years in prison.
Carla Bousman, 64, appeared in court on Thursday to get a new crime for escaping custody.
The Iowa Department of Corrections says that Bousman ran away from the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women in Mitchellville on May 2.
Authorities fetched the 5 foot-6 prisoner, £ 260 in about a mile from the facility.

A spokesman for the Department of Corrections in Iowa told WHO TV Bousman was placed in a & # 39; minimum live-out & # 39; unit outside the prison fence.
Prisoners housed there may work outside the prison with supervision and return to prison at the end of the day.
Bousman was imprisoned last year after being guilty of neglecting a dependent person and six other indictments in the death of Sabrina Ray in 2017.
The grandmother admitted that she had locked Sabrina's two sisters in a room with the girl when she died of hunger. She also admitted that she was hiding evidence after the girl died with a weight of just 56 pounds.
If he is convicted of the warrant, Bousman will be in prison for another five years.
She has not pleaded guilty about the number of crimes. Her next appearance in court is on July 11.

In January, Sabrina's adoptive mother, 41-year-old Misty Jo Bousman Ray, was sentenced to prison life without the possibility of conditional release, and her adoptive father, 43-year-old Marc Ray, received an eighty-year sentence.
Bousman Ray pleaded guilty for a count of the first-degree abduction and two counts of the third-degree abduction with two other adopted children who lived with her in Perry, Iowa.
Sabrina & # 39; s brother, Justin Ray, 22, pleaded guilty to two counts of intentional injury in February and was sentenced to 10 years in prison
Marc Ray pleaded guilty in December 2018 to child threats causing the death and three counts of the abduction of the third degree.
Sabrina & # 39; s brother, Justin Ray, 22, pleaded guilty to two counts of intentional injuries in February and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Prosecutors said that he kicked emaciated Sabrina into a basement and did not allow her to walk, talk, eat or drink normally.
Marc and Misty, who ran a daycare that they called Rays of Sunshine Daycare on 1708 First Avenue in Perry, adopted Sabrina as a foster child in 2011 and adopted her in 2013.
Officers found her adopted sisters in the room with her lifeless body when they arrived at the house in May 2017.
Sabrina was discovered with a diaper worn and covered with wounds.
In a report that was briefly unsealed last year, an officer called the house & # 39; the most horrible scene in my entire career and life & # 39 ;.
