Shoreview woman arrested for paying to have girlfriend beat

A Shoreview woman has been charged with paying someone to beat her girlfriend, who was killed three years ago, a year before the slaying, the Star Tribune reported.
Dianna M. Siveny, 50, was charged in Wisconsin on Friday with solicitation of substantial battery and being party to criminal damage to a property. She was arrested Friday in Ramsey County and was then held before transferring to Appleton, Wis., where she used to live.
Prosecutors say Siveny and her daughter paid a man $300 in 2006 to attack Lara Plamann, her domestic partner, with a baseball bat.
The man admitted to investigators that he was told to break bones and inflict substantial damage, but did not because another person was at Plamann's home at the time of the planned assault.
Plamann died in October 2007 after she was shot in the head. Her body was found in a shed at the Greenville home she shared with Siveny, the Pioneer Press said.
No charges have been filed against Siveny in connection with Plamann's death, but the investigation is still continuing, according to Outagamie County district attorney Carrie Schneider.
