Leetonia woman faces more charges in Lisbon murder case

LISBON, Ohio (WKBN)— Additional charges have been filed against Danielle Heckathorn, accused of involvement in the murder of Quinn Wilson last March.

The Leetonia woman has additionally been charged with complicity to murder, conspiracy to commit robbery, complicity to robbery and three counts of obstructing justice, along with the initial tampering with evidence charge filed against her, the Morning Journal reports.

Heckathorn was charged with tampering with evidence for allegedly being found with the phone of Wilson, the murder victim. Court documents say an examination of the phone showed there had been 43 text messages deleted from Wilson’s phone — messages reportedly between himself and Heckathorn — in the two days prior to Wilson’s death.

Wilson’s body was found off of Seigler Road in March, shortly after Daniel Landsberger reportedly confessed to his neighbor that he had killed a man. Landsberger was arrested after the neighbor told police that Landsberger came over to his trailer and told him that he took the body out in pieces and that he’d have to burn the bed

When police arrived at Landsberger’s property to follow up on the report, they found blood on the walls of his trailer and a burnt mattress on a wood pile. He has been charged with tampering with evidence.

Police say Heckathorn conspired with Landsberger to rob Wilson and then accompanied the men to a location where Wilson was assaulted and robbed, according to the Morning Journal,
