One juror stated we felt Katie Wolfmeyer wasn’t entirely innocent, but said prosecutors couldn’t prove her guilty … in explaining the outcome that freed the 19-year-old of charges that she helped former St. Louis Blues hockey player Mike Danton in a murder-for-hire scheme. A jury in East St. Louis found Wolfmeyer not guilty – an outcome justifying her decision to reject a plea bargain from prosecutors offered to avoid trial. Wolfmeyer was charged with helping Danton hire a hit man to kill David Frost, his agent. Prosecutors say Danton feared Frost would go to Blues’ management about his drinking and promiscuity. Danton has pleaded guilty and will be sentenced next month.
