Sadowski’s preliminary exam to be rescheduled


MARQUETTE — A preliminary exam was held Tuesday for Jason David Sadowski, the man charged with homicide-open murder in relation to the May 30 death of a Munising man, but was not completed due to a need for further investigation.

A date for the next preliminary exam has not yet been scheduled.

Sadowski was arrested by the Munising Police Department on June 7 on a warrant issued by the Alger County Prosecutor’s Office on the charge of homicide-open murder. The charge stems from the suspicious death of a 58-year-old Munising man on May 30.

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

Sadowski had previously been released from prison after being 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 in March 2017.

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

He was originally convicted of the charges in March 2014, but appealed the court’s decision in December 2015 and was granted a retrial.
