Jury finds defendant guilty in Columbiana Co. murder trial

Prosecutors say Heckathorn played a role by helping Landsberger rob Quinn Wilson, who was found dead in Wayne Township

Danielle Heckathorn is charged with complicity to commit murder and robbery in the death of Quinn Wilson.

LISBON, Ohio (WKBN) – A Columbiana County jury has found Danielle Heckathorn guilty as charged.

Heckathorn was charged with complicity to murder, conspiracy to commit robbery, complicity to robbery, tampering with evidence and three counts of obstructing justice after an investigation into the death of Quinn Wilson.

Wilson’s body was found cut up and hidden in a wooded area in Wayne Township in March 2014.

Daniel Landsberger has already been convicted and sentenced in the murder, but prosecutors say Heckathorn played a role by helping Landsberger rob Wilson and then not telling police what she knew.
