Trial starts in death of burned Ohioan along road

Published: Fri, September 27, 2013 @ 3:15 p.m.

ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Jury selection has begun in the trial of an Ohio man accused in the gruesome death of a woman found covered in burns and wailing in agony along a rural road.

The Muskingum County prosecutor’s office says jury selection began today in LaFonse Dixon’s trial. He has pleaded not guilty to murder, kidnapping and arson in the killing of 29-year-old Celeste Fronsman of Canton.

A driver found Fronsman on a road northeast of Zanesville in eastern Ohio in August 2012. She had been raped and burned and had a strap around her neck. She died two days later.

Two women arrested with Dixon pleaded guilty to aggravated murder and agreed to testify against him to avoid the death penalty.

Prosecutors have declined to discuss a motive in the killing.

I Don't Know How Anybody can Be So heartless and Cruel to another Human Being. This Man Along with the Women Should Die With In 10 Days of There conviction but to wait 30 yrs before Ohio finally kills them, is not justice for the victims or there families. . Danny Lee Hill That Murdered That Little Fife Boy Lived His Life Out In Prison Getting Fatter & Fatter And Still 30 yrs Later That SOB is still Alive. Our Ohio Laws Stink. Death Should Be 10 days after conviction . Not 30 plus yrs later, Ohio stinks.. I hate Our Laws, WE Need Texas Laws. That's My Vote.!!!!!
