APPLETON, Wis. (AP) — Homicide charges have been dropped against a second person in a 2007 slaying in Outagamie County.
Judge Nancy Krueger on Tuesday approved the decision to drop charges against Dianna Siveny in the death of her domestic partner, Laura Plamann. WLUK-TV reports the judge dismissed the charges without prejudice, meaning they could be refiled in the future.
Charges were previously dropped against the defendant’s daughter, Kandi Siveny, of St. Paul, Minn., also without prejudice. Prosecutors alleged Dianna Siveny hired Rosie Campbell to kill Plamann. But when she backed out, Kandi Siveny allegedly shot Plamann. Campbell was sentenced to 5-½ years in prison in the case.
Plamann was found shot to death in October of 2007 in a shed near the Greenville home she shared with Dianna Siveny.
