One of three people charged in the death of a Canton Woman found beaten and burned on the side of a road is now in Muskingum County.

Sheriff Matt Lutz said 33-year-old LaFonse Dixon was extradited to Muskingum County last night and is currently sitting in the county jail.

According to Lutz, the other two suspects, 24-year old Monica Washington and 20-year-old Katrina Culberson will both be brought to
Muskingum County at separate times as part of the standard security procedure.

"The main reason he was brought back first other than we believe the other two suspects have minor charges still pending up in Stark County that they have to get taken care of before we bring them back," said Lutz. 

"Obviously we would do those transports separately for security reasons and to keep them separated," Lutz added, "so, we got him back last night and we’re starting the process of the court system."

Dixon is expected to be arraigned next week.
