A Sarpy County judge set bail at $2 million on Thursday after a Papillion woman was charged with second-degree murder in connection with the death of her domestic partner.

Anne M. Valgora, 49, is also charged with use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony and tampering with evidence.

She must pay 10% of the bail amount, $200,000, to be released from the Sarpy County Jail.

If convicted, Valgora faces 20 years to life in prison on the second-degree murder charge, five to 50 years on the weapon charge and two years on the tampering charge.

According to the complaint filed by the Sarpy County attorney, Valgora used a gun to kill Steven Olson, 44, at their home at 600 S. Fillmore St. The shooting was not premeditated, the complaint says.

The complaint also says Valgora concealed physical evidence in an attempt to evade prosecution.

Deputy Sarpy County Attorney Laurie Burgess told Judge PaTricia Freeman at Thursday’s hearing that Valgora has no criminal record. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for July 9.
