BARRON (AP) – Three people, including the victim’s ex-wife, have been ordered to stand trial in a Barron County homicide.

The three were in court Monday on charges of party to first-degree intentional homicide in the death of Daniel Raven. He was shot to death in his Barron house two weeks ago. Raven’s former wife, Trista Raven-Hrabak, is accused of planning the homicide beginning last November. A complaint says two of the defendants had gone to the victim’s house at least six previous times with the intent to kill him, but didn’t do so.

The woman’s boyfriend, Ian Skjerly, of Rice Lake, and an acquaintance, Robert McBain, of Cameron, are also charged in the case. WQOW-TV says all three are due back in court next month. Defense attorney John Hinde didn’t immediately respond to a phone message.
