Dixon Trial Begins Tuesday Morning

by Katie McGraw on October 8, 2013

One of the most brutal cases in Muskingum County Common Pleas Court, is scheduled to begin Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. before Judge Kelly Cottrill.

The panel of jurors has been selected for 34-year-old LaFonse Dixon, the man accused in the gruesome murder of 29-year-old Celeste Fronsman of Canton, Ohio. On August 26th 2012, a driver found Fronsman on State Route 208 near Adamsville, she was covered in burns and had a strap around her neck. She died from her injuries two days later.

Two women arrested with Dixon – Monica Washington and Katrina Culberson, both of Canton, have pleaded guilty to aggravated murder and agreed to testify against him to avoid the death penalty. WHIZ will have a camera crew present at the trial and will bring you daily updates of the court proceedings.
