Staci had three children under 10 with her husband Fred Auston Wortman, 39 – two girls and a boy. They’d met at university and Staci had been bowled over by the charming football player. Fred was smart, generous and kind – perfect husband material.
As the investigation continued, Staci took out an order of protection against her husband but police needed more evidence to charge him. They arranged a ‘sting’ operation to get the proof they needed and an undercover agent posed as a hitman willing to help Fred out.
