APPLETON, Wis. --Three women are arrested in connection a murder more than five years ago.
30-year-old Lara Plamann was shot in the head. Her body was found in a shed outside her Greenville home back in 2007.
Plamann's partner 53-year-old Dianna Siveny, her 34-year-old daughter Kandi, and 38-year-old Rosie Campbell were arrested in connection to the murder. Investigators won't say how the three women were involved.
In 2011 prosecutors dropped charges against Siveny and her daughter for allegedly hiring a man to beat up Plamann a year before her murder. The alleged attack wasn't carried out.
After following thousands of leads, investigators are relieved to finally make the arrests.
"A case such as this, particularly homicides where an innocent person is killed, it becomes job one for us to bring whoever is responsible for that action to justice," Captain Mike Jobe said.
The executive director of Harbor House, a shelter for abused women in Appleton, thought this day would never come.
"We've been tracking this case because it looked like it was a domestic violence homicide," Executive Director Beth Schnorr said. "We really felt for the family and are glad the case is moving forward."
Plamann's family released this statement, "We've had our own theories as to what took place that evening, and these arrests have confirmed some of our suspicions."
Dianna will make her first court appearance on Monday.No word when the other two women will appear in court because they were arrested in Minnesota.
