APPLETON — Bail was set at $1 million Friday during a court appearance for one of two Minnesota women charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the 2007 shooting death of Greenville’s Lara Plamann.

Kandi Siveny, 34, who was booked Thursday in Outagamie County Jail along with Rosie Campbell, 38, appeared before Outagamie County Court Commissioner Brian Figy. Campbell will make an initial appearance Monday.

Figy also set conditions for Siveny, including that she make no contact with Plamann’s family or the other women charged in the case. This includes Siveny’s mother, Dianna Siveny, 53, who appeared in court Feb. 18.

Campbell, Kandi Siveny and Dianna Siveny were charged Monday in Outagamie County as parties to first-degree intentional homicide in the Oct. 17, 2007, death of 30-year-old Plamann. Police found Plamann’s body in her shed near the home she shared with Dianna Siveny in Greenville on Oct. 18, 2007, the day after Dianna Siveny reported her missing.

Siveny and Campbell both waived extradition from Minnesota on Feb. 19.

On Feb. 14, Campbell told authorities she watched Kandi Siveny kill Plamann for her mother, who was upset Plamann was cheating on her, according to the criminal complaint.

Campbell also gave investigators a bullet she took out of the gun after the shooting. Police said the bullet was consistent with the size and caliber of the bullet recovered during Plamann’s autopsy.

Campbell originally was scheduled to appear in court Friday, but District Attorney Carrie Schneider said Campbell wasn’t available to make an appearance. She wouldn’t provide further details.

Plamann’s family sat in the front row of Figy’s courtroom during Kandi Siveny’s initial appearance.

“We’re glad that things are moving along the way they are,” said Larry Plamann, Lara’s dad.

He said the family was “kind of close” to Dianna Siveny and her daughter, Kandi.

“When you see her in court there, you wonder why she thought to do that,” he said.

Dianna Siveny and her daughter also face a charge of solicitation of substantial battery for trying to hire a man to beat up Plamann before her death. Both Sivenys will have preliminary hearings on March 25.
