Wolfmeyer Pleads Innoncent in Danton Case
St. Louis – A woman indicted as an accomplice in an alleged murder-for-hire plot with St. Louis Blues forward Mike Danton pleaded innocent Thursday.
Katie Wolfmeyer entered the plea in federal court in East St. Louis. A pretrial hearing was scheduled for July 1, and her trial was set for July 13.
Danton and Wolfmeyer were indicted April 22 by a federal grand jury on charges of conspiring to arrange a murder for hire and using a telephone across state lines in an attempt to do so.
Danton remains jailed in California, where he was arrested April 16, hours after the San Jose Sharks eliminated the Blues from the NHL playoffs. His attorney has said Danton also will plead innocent.
