50 Years in Killing of Teen

Story by WBGZ Radio

A 21-year-old Granite City man convicted of First Degree Murder in the death of a 13-year-old in 2013 will spend the next 50 years in prison.  LaRoyce Montez McFadden of the 1,900 block of Benton walked up to the porch where Clayton Veninga was sitting the night of May 3, 2013 and shot him.

Veninga was hit in the side and later pronounced dead at an area hospital.  McFadden was arrested a few days later. A jury deliberated for about a half-hour before returning the guilty verdict in December.  McFadden will be required to serve 100% of his sentence.
