Layman arrested on obstruction complaint

Team Radio Marketing Group - August 11, 2017 10:01 am

Danielle Dana Layman, 37, was arrested Thursday by Ponca City Police on a complaint of obstruction.

Officers were assisting a state agency when Layman was arrested. She faces a trial next Tuesday in Municipal Court on the obstruction charge.

Layman was arrested June 30, accused of engaging an individual to travel to Israel for the purpose of administering ricin to  her former husband. Ricin is a poison created from castor beans.

The witness asked to participate in the scheme was given a packet of ricin, along with codes and instructions, according to an affidavit filed in the case.

The FBI conducted a search of Layman’s home in Ponca City on July 3.

In July, Layman waived her preliminary hearing and was released from federal custody on house arrest.

A Federal Grand Jury sitting in Oklahoma City returned an indictment in the murder-for-hire case earlier this month.
