Second man charged with murder in death of Tearicka Cradle


COLUMBUS (WCMH) — A second man has been charged with murder in the death of Columbus city employee Tearicka L. Cradle.

Ivan Netter was arrested by Columbus SWAT on Thursday around 5:45 p.m. at a residence on East 16th Avenue. He was charged with murder and is set to appear Saturday at 9 a.m. for his arraignment.

Earlier this month, Lonnie Ray Davis appeared in Franklin County Common Pleas Court on murder charges for Cradle’s death. His bond was set at $500,000. His next appearance is August 16.

Both men are suspected of shooting and killing Cradle in a northeast Columbus home on July 18.

According to a city spokesperson, Cradle worked for the city for nearly nine years, most recently in the Department of Building and Zoning Services.
