GREEN BAY (WITI) -- A Green Bay man charged with sexually assaulting a teenage girl is now accused of trying to hire someone to kill the teen and her mother.
Laene Piontek is charged with two counts of solicitation of first-degree intentional homicide.
WLUK-TV reports a criminal complaint says Piontek offered another inmate in the Brown County Jail $20,000 to kill the two. Piontek was charged earlier this month with repeated sexual assault of a child.
WBAY-TV reports that on June 14, Piontek's cellmate at the Brown County Jail provided jail staff with a note that claimed Piontek had solicited him to murder two witnesses in the child sex case for four payments of $5000 "in the future," according to the complaint.
The inmate said he was given a map with detailed descriptions of the home where the witnesses live. That inmate offered to reproduce the map for investigators. The inmate also had a description of a car driven by one of the intended targets.
