Two employees at Larned State Hospital are charged with helping a convicted sexual offender escape last summer. Rachel Rena Perez, 50, of Larned, and Liliana Guadalupe Houser, 45, of Garden City, made their first court appearances Tuesday. They each face more than a dozen charges related to the escape of John Freeman Colt in June.

Colt was recaptured in Utah in September. Pawnee County Attorney Douglas McNett said in a release the charges against Perez and Houser include having unlawful sexual relations with a patient and trafficking in contraband.
