MADISON, Wis. – Police arrested a Madison man they believe shot his girlfriend and their small children during a domestic dispute.
Donte Beasley, 38, was booked into the Dane County jail Tuesday afternoon. According to a search warrant application, he opened fire on 42-year-old Zenolia Rice, their 8-year-old daughter, Destiny Beasley, and their 7-year-old son, Donte Beasley Jr. in the duplex they shared Saturday morning.
The court documents say the dispute began after Rice refused to have sex with Beasley.
Online court records didn't list an attorney for Beasley. Attorney Nancy Vue, who represented Beasley in a driving-after-revocation case earlier this year, didn't immediately return a message.
