A Portage County judge has sentenced Linda Dietze to seven years in prison and 13 years on extended supervision for shooting Jim Glodowski five times in the head at Zenoff Park in Stevens Point in November 2008.

STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WSAU) – The woman convicted of shooting a Rosholt farmer five times in the head last fall was sentenced Wednesday to seven years in prison.

Linda Dietze must also spend 13 years on extended supervision and pay more than $61,000 of Jim Glodowski’s medical expenses.

Dietze pled guilty in July to shooting Glodowski last November at Zenoff Park in Stevens Point. Prosecutors allege Dietze tried to kill Glodowski so his wife could continue an extramarital affair with another man.

“She may be mildly retarded but she’s still responsible for her actions,” said district attorney Tom Eagon.

“Jim has a lot to live for and he has too much to die for,” Eagon said in describing the now 51-year-old father of five, who suffers from numbness on half his face and blindness in one eye. One bullet remains too close to his spine to be safely removed.

“If I could take this day back, I would, but I know that cannot happen,” Dietze told Glodowski. “I hope one day you can find it in your heart to forgive my actions.”

As part of her plea deal, Dietze must testify against her two co-conspirators when they go on trial.
