Beaver Dam Woman Bound Over For Shooting Of Boyfriend

(Beaver Dam) A Beaver Dam woman accused of shooting her boyfriend is heading to trial. Tonya Diniz waived her right to a preliminary hearing Thursday on a felony count of Second Degree Reckless Injury by Use of a Dangerous Weapon and a misdemeanor charge of Intentionally Pointing a Firearm at a Person. On April 14, Beaver Dam police were dispatched to an apartment building at 106 Lakecrest Drive at 9am. Officers found a 20-year-old male lying on an air mattress in a bedroom with a gunshot wound to the groin. He allegedly told police that Diniz had shot him, adding that the two were not fighting and that he did not believe the act to be intentional. According to the criminal complaint, the victim later said Diniz was upset because she had found out he had been speaking to another woman but maintained that the shooting was not done purposefully. When questioned, Diniz reportedly said she shot her boyfriend after confronting him about texts he sent to another woman. Diniz allegedly said she pointed the gun at his groin area and as she knelt on the bed it accidently went off. If convicted, the 28-year-old Diniz is facing up to 13 years in prison. An arraignment hearing is scheduled for May 30.
