He was found dead in his home on Oakland Dr. in Kalamazoo in August, 2012.

On Feb. 26, a jury found Antonio Livingston guilty of first-degree murder, felony murder, first-degree home invasion and assault with intent to rob.

The jury ruled that the 21-year-old knowingly assisted in the robbery and beating death of Medema, 74, of Portage in August 2012.
