2nd woman pleads guilty in gruesome Ohio killing



Published: Wed, March 20, 2013 @ 3:20 p.m.

ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — The second of three suspects has pleaded guilty in the killing of a woman found covered in burns and wailing on a rural Ohio roadside.

Monica Washington of Canton pleaded guilty to aggravated murder Monday in Muskingum County. County prosecutor Michael Haddox tells the Zanesville Times Recorder the 25-year-old agreed to testify and his office removed the possibility of the death penalty.

Another woman charged pleaded guilty last fall in a deal to escape a possible death penalty. The third suspect, LaFonse Dixon Jr. of Canton, pleaded not guilty and is expected to be tried this year.

They’re charged in the death of 29-year-old Celeste Fronsman, who was burned and had a strap around her neck when a driver spotted her in August 2012. She died two days later.
