Jury finds Clarksville man guilty of murdering 2-year-old last year

An Ionia jury took about an hour to find a Clarksville man guilty of murder and first-degree child abuse in the death of his girlfriend’s 2-year-old son last year.

After a two and a half-day trial in Ionia County Circuit Court, jurors found Matthew Ryan Rademacher, 28, guilty on Friday morning of killing Colton Sceviour, 2, of Clarksville on Sept. 18, 2020.
