April sentencing date for men convicted in torture trial

Cope-Charles-LeroySadowski-Jason-DavidA sentencing date is set for two Ishpeming men convicted of torturing and kidnapping two women.

Jason Sadowski and Charles Cope are scheduled for sentencing in Marquette County Circuit Court April 21.

The men were found guilty on two counts of torture and two counts unlawful imprisonment.  Sadowski was also convicted of solicitation of murder and two counts of assault with intent to do great bodily harm, less than murder.

Including jury selection, their trial lasted seven days.

The charges stem from an incident where the men held two women captive in the basement of The Martial Way in Ishpeming in July 2013.

The pair could face life in prison.
