Wolfe was a 19-year-old marijuana dealer in the Bristow area of Prince William County when his supplier, Daniel Petrole Jr., 21, was shot dead near his townhouse in March 2001. Soon, tales emerged of high-dollar travel, spending and millions of dollars in marijuana and ecstasy trafficking in Northern Virginia, by participants not old enough to legally drink. A high school friend of Wolfe’s, Owen M. Barber IV, pleaded guilty and testified that Wolfe had ordered him to kill Petrole. A jury convicted Wolfe of capital murder in 2002, and he was sentenced to death.
