The case of the third person arrested in Celeste Fronsman’s death went before a Muskingum County Grand Jury Wednesday.

33-year-old LaFonse Dixon, of Canton, was indicted on one count each of aggravated murder with two death specifications, kidnapping and aggravated arson, Prosecutor Mike Haddox says Dixon is also facing other charges. 

"In addition he was indicted on one count of conspiracy to commit kidnapping and one count of conspiracy to commit aggravated murder," said Haddox.

Haddox describes how the case will move forward.

"There’ll be a trial date set at sometime in the future, although typically death specification cases kind of have a longer track if you will than normal felony cases so it may be several months before we actually have any trial dates."

Dixon is scheduled for arraignment next Wednesday where he will enter a plea to the charges against him.
