St. Louis – A last-minute plea agreement is not expected for Katie Wolfmeyer, the woman accused of conspiring with former St. Louis Blues player Mike Danton in a murder-for-hire plot.

Wolfmeyer's uncle, John Wolfmeyer, and her lawyer, Art Margulis, say no plea agreement is in the works.

Katie Wolfmeyer has pleaded innocent, and jury selection begins Wednesday in East St. Louis.

Prosecutors have said Danton's agent David Frost was the intended victim of the plot. Frost was not hurt and has maintained he was not the target.

It's not yet known if Danton will take the stand. He is not obligated under his plea agreement to testify against Wolfmeyer.

Danton pleaded guilty July 16th to a charge related to the murder-for-hire plot. The plot unraveled when the would-be hit man turned out to be a police informant.
