Plea hearings set for 2 in Krazy Glue assault

CHILTON, Wis. (AP) — Plea hearings have been set for two of three women accused of assaulting a Fond du Lac man.

Forty-eight-year-old Therese Ziemann of Menasha and 43-year-old Michelle Belliveau of Neenah have plea hearings set for Dec. 14. Ziemann’s attorney declined to discuss the status of negotiations. Belliveau’s attorney said he’s hopeful talks will lead to a lesser charge for his client.

Meanwhile, a third woman, 44-year-old Wendy Sewell of Kaukauna, pleaded not guilty Monday to false imprisonment.

This summer, police found 37-year-old Donessa Davis in a motel room. He had been allegedly assaulted, and his penis was glued to his body.

Davis’ wife was also charged, but the case against her was dismissed.

Well-rested Packers get back to work

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Coming off their Thanksgiving Day victory at Detroit, the Green Bay Packers are well rested and in the thick of the NFC wild card race.

Tested by a stretch of three games in 12 days that included season-ending injuries to two key defensive players, the Packers not only survived but won all three to turn around their season after back-to-back losses in early November.

“We knew this three-game stretch was going to be very challenging physically,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters in Green Bay on Monday. “Now with the time off, we feel like we have a chance to regroup and take a run at these last final games. We really like where we are as a football team.”

But things are tough from here on out.

When players return from a weekend break Tuesday morning, they’ll begin preparing for next Monday night’s home game against Baltimore (6-5), which is coming off an overtime victory over Pittsburgh.

Then the Packers (7-4) play three of their last four games on the road.

Coming off the shock of season-ending injuries to cornerback Al Harris and outside linebacker Aaron Kampman last week, McCarthy said the rest of the team is relatively healthy.

Wis. police to arrest man in domestic shooting

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A man shot his girlfriend and their two children after the woman refused to have sex with him, authorities said in court documents filed Monday.

The Madison Police Department posted a statement on its Web site announcing it plans to arrest 38-year-old Donte Beasley after he is released from the hospital, where he is being treated for self-inflicted cuts to his neck. He remains under police guard.

Attorney Nancy Vue, who according to online court records represented Beasley in a driving-after-revocation case earlier this year, didn’t immediately return a message left at her office Monday.

According to a search warrant application, Beasley lived with 42-year-old Zenolia Rice, their 8-year-old daughter Destiny Beasley and their 7-year-old son Donte Beasley Jr. in a duplex on Madison’s southwest side.

Rice told officers Beasley came into the bedroom around 6 a.m. Saturday. He was drunk, police said in the statement Monday.

Beasley demanded sex but Rice refused. She went out to the living room couch. Beasley followed her and “got confrontational,” the search warrant application said.

Rice picked up a phone to call police, but Beasley took it from her. She called out to her children for help.
