MADISON (WKOW) — A woman who pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder learned her punishment Monday.
According to online court records, Jennifer Lovick, 35, Madison was sentenced to 15 years in prison and 10 years of extended supervision in the 2017 killing of a Madison woman.
Ciara Philumalee, 24, was killed early in the morning July 28, 2017 in a shooting on Karstens Drive.
Lovick pleaded guilty in August to a charge of Conspiracy to Commit Felony Murder. Charges of Party to First Degree Intentional Homicide and Party to First Degree Reckless Injury were dismissed.
Lovick was one of four co-defendants: Donald Davis, Jr. was found guilty of First-Degree Intentional Homicide. Nicole Marco pleaded guilty to First Degree Reckless Homicide and Korey Johnson pleaded guilty to Second Degree Reckless Homicide, court records show.
Authorities say Davis believed Philumalee had helped people who robbed him several days before the homicide. Deputy Dane County District Attorney Matthew Moeser says Davis put out a “hit” on Philumalee, paying Lovick with money and crack cocaine to help him find Philumalee.
