As the murder trial of Lafonse Dixon enters its second week of testimony the prosecution continues to call witnesses.
Monday, Muskingum County Prosecutor Mike Haddox called two experts from Ohio BCI to the stand. The pair testified that they examined and ran tests on evidence from the crime scene. A third expert from Ohio BCI also testified about his work doing DNA analysis on some of the items found.
The third expert testified that DNA found on masking tape located in the Chevy Tahoe matched that of Dixon.
In early testimony an ex-boyfriend of Katrina Culberson, Ralph Horne, testified that Culberson borrowed the Tahoe without permission and Dixon was with her when it was brought back.
Monday afternoon, Detective Hill was also called to stand to testify and he recounted his investigation from the August 26th murder of Celeste Fronsman. His testimony included how he found Dixon, Kartina Culberson and Monica Washington. The defense questioned him as to why he would let Culberson and Washington discuss what happened together during a joint interview.
Dixon is on trial for the aggravated murder of Celeste Fronsman in August of 2012. He also faces charges of kidnapping and arson.
