Sadowski accused of homicide

MUNISING — Jason David Sadowski was arrested by the Munising Police Department at about 3:30 p.m. Friday on a warrant issued by the Alger County Prosecutor’s Office on a charge of homicide-open murder.

The arrest stemmed from an investigation into the suspicious death of a 58-year-old Munising man. Police were called to the man’s residence around 8 p.m. May 30. The man, whose identity wasn’t publicly released, was pronounced dead at the scene by Alger County EMS.

Sadowski is lodged at the Alger County Sheriff’s Office where he is being held on a no-bond warrant.

Homicide-open murder is a felony that carries a maximum penalty of life in prison.

Officials could not be reached for further comment by press time Friday evening.

In March 2017, Sadowski was acquitted of one count of solicitation to commit murder, two counts torture, two counts false imprisonment and two counts strangulation following a lengthy jury deliberation, and was released from prison.

Those charges stemmed from a July 2013 incident in which Sadowski was accused of tying up two women, threatening and beating them in the basement of his Ishpeming home and business.

After being convicted in March 2014, he had successfully appealed the decision in December 2015 and was granted a retrial.
