APPLETON — A mother and daughter were bound over for trial Monday on homicide charges in the 2007 shooting death of Greenville’s Lara Plamann.
Kandi Siveny and her mother, Dianna Siveny, appeared jointly in court for a preliminary hearing on first-degree intentional homicide charges. Outagamie Judge Mark McGinnis ruled there was probable cause for the bindover.
Prosecutors elicited testimony from Outagamie County Sheriff’s Department investigators Jeff Dietzen and Christopher Hammen.
Hammen related descriptions of the shooting provided by Rosie O. Campbell, who is also charged in the case.
Campbell told investigators she was hired to shoot Plamann, but backed out while outside the Wisconsin Avenue home. Kandi Siveny shot Plamann twice and they drove back to their homes in Minnesota, authorities say.
On the way home, Kandi Siveny said, “That girl will never cheat on my mom again,” Hammen testified Monday.
Plamann, 30, was shot to death on Oct. 17, 2007. Police found Plamann’s body in a shed near the home she shared with Dianna Siveny the next day.
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.
The Sivenys had long been suspects in Plamann’s death.
Men interviewed by investigators in 2008 said Kandi Siveny had asked them to get her a gun so she could kill her mother’s girlfriend, according to a 2009 search warrant.
Dianna Siveny called the investigation “garbage” when interviewed by Post-Crescent Media in 2009.
“They have only targeted me,” she said at the time. “I never once said anything to anybody or offered anyone any money or anything to harm Lara in any way.”
Campbell gave detectives a bullet she took out of the gun after the shooting. Sheriff’s deputies said the bullet was consistent with the size and caliber of the bullet recovered during Plamann’s autopsy.
Campbell will appear in court Wednesday for her preliminary hearing.
