Conviction Upheld in Murder AttemptSubmitted: 01/10/2013
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - 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.

They hired Linda Dietze to kill Carla Glodowski's husband, James.

Dietze shot James Glodowski in a Stevens Point park in 2009.

He 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 today found Cummings' statement was unclear and upheld his conviction.

Cummings' attorney, David Karpe, didn't immediately return a telephone message.
