APPLETON, Wis. - A Minnesota woman shot her mother's girlfriend in the head in 2007 in Wisconsin, according to criminal complaints filed Monday.

Kandi Siveny, 34, of St. Paul, Minn. was charged with first-degree intentional homicide, party to a crime and solicitation of substantial battery in the death of 30-year-old Lara Plamann in Outagamie County. Her mother, 53-year-old Dianna Siveny of Appleton, Wis., faces the same charges. A third woman, Rosie Campbell, 38, of St. Paul was also charged with first-degree intentional homicide.

According to the criminal complaint obtained by WLUK-TV, the three plotted the shooting beforehand and the Sivenys planned to pay Campbell to shoot Plamann.

Originally, Campbell was going to shoot Plamann, but Campbell told authorities she "chickened out" when they were in the car outside of the house. At that point, Kandi Siveny took the gun and said, "I'll just do it," the complaint said.

Campbell saw Siveny shoot Plamann, the complaint said, and Campbell was paid $300 "to keep her mouth shut."

Dianna Siveny told deputies at that time there had been no issues between her and Plamann, the complaint said. It noted that in 2006 and 2007, Plamann's will had been changed to make Dianna Siveny the sole beneficiary.

According to the complaint, Plamann and Dianna Siveny had been together since 1998, but Siveny knew Plamann had an affair with another woman a few weeks before she was killed.

Dianna and Kandi Siveny were charged in 2010 with paying a Minnesota man to beat Plamann in 2006. The attack wasn't carried out, and charges were dropped.

A judge set a $1 million cash bond Monday for Dianna Siveny and a preliminary hearing for March 25. Online court records did not list defense attorneys or indicate when initial appearances would be made by the other two women.
