2 St. Paul women charged with plotting 2007 murder in Wisconsin

Two St. Paul women face first-degree murder charges in connection with a 2007 killing in Greenville, Wisconsin.

The mother of one of the women is also accused of being part of a plot to kill her domestic partner. The Pioneer Press reports a criminal complaint alleges Kandi Siveny wanted her mother's partner killed and hired Rosie Campbell to do the job.

According to the complaint, Campbell was unable to go through with the murder and Siveny fired the shot that killed Lara Plamann. Kandi Siveny and her mother, Dianna Siveny, allegedly suspected that Plamann, the elder Siveny's partner, had begun seeing another woman.

At a court hearing in Appleton, Wisc., Monday a judge set a $1 million cash bond for Dianna Siveny, 53. WLUK-TV reports Wisconsin authorities are awaiting extradition of the two St. Paul women.

Investigators have been pursuing a case against the Sivenys for years. The Appleton Post-Crescent reported on authorities seizing Kandi Siveny's laptop computer for evidence in 2009, while the younger Siveny was in prison on a drug conviction.

The Post-Crescent reports the breakthrough in the case came last week, when investigators allegedly got Campbell to describe the scene on the day of Plamann's killing.
