BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (AP) - The wife of a Bartlesville man who
disappeared for almost seven years before turning up last week alive in South Dakota has filed for divorce, accusing her husband of "extreme cruelty."
On Monday, Peggy Rockey filed a petition for divorce against David Rockey, her husband of 32 years, according to a petition filed in Washington County District Court.
She is also seeking a temporary restraining order to prevent her husband from taking life insurance funds or the mortgage to their home.
Peggy Rockey did not immediately return a call to her home seeking comment Tuesday.
David Rockey, a former Phillips Petroleum Company employee, disappeared in August 2002, and some thought he was a homicide victim.
Rockey spoke with Bartlesville police last week after authorities in South Dakota notified Bartlesville police after he applied for a driver's license.
