APPLETON, Wis. — A judge has delayed the trial for a woman charged in the shooting death of her former domestic partner nearly seven years ago.

Diana Siveny was due to go on trial next week on a charge of being a party to first-degree intentional homicide in the death of Lara Plamann. On Monday, Judge Nancy Krueger set the trial for Jan. 26 at the prosecutor's request.

Plamann was found shot to death in October 2007 in a shed near the Greenville home she shared with Siveny. The 55-year-old Sivney, her 30-year-old daughter and another woman were charged last year.

Outagamie County District Attorney Carrie Schneider wanted the trial postponed until after the trial of the third defendant, who has said she'll refuse to testify against Siveny despite an offer of immunity.
