MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A state appeals court says a man accused of plotting to kill his lover's husband was properly convicted.
Portage County prosecutors accused Carlos Cummings of conspiring with his girlfriend, Carla Glodowski, of hiring Linda Dietze to kill Carla Glodowski's husband, James.
Dietze shot James Glodowski in a Stevens Point park in 2009. The man survived but lost an eye. Cummings was sentenced to 14 years in prison. Carla Glodowski got 10 years and Dietze got seven.
Cummings contended police continued to question him after he asked to be taken to his cell, violating his right to remain silent.
The 4th District Court of Appeals concluded in an opinion released Thursday that Cummings' statement was unclear and upheld his conviction.
Cummings' attorney, David Karpe, didn't immediately return a telephone message.
