Louisiana: Demethius Dixon Sentenced for Role in 2016 Killing

Louisiana Man, Demethius Dixon Sentenced to 10 Years in Federal Prison for Role in 2016 Killing at Hattiesburg Mugshots Restaurant

Hattiesburg, MI (STL.News) Demethius Dixon, also known as Deezy, 29, of Shreveport, Louisiana, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Taylor B. McNeel to 120 months in federal prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release, for carrying and using a firearm during a drug trafficking crime, resulting in the firearm being discharged, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Darren LaMarca and Special Agent in Charge Brad Byerley with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Dixon was also ordered to pay a $1500 fine.

On June 26, 2016, Dixon and his co-defendant, James Windham, met with a third party at a Hattiesburg Mugshots restaurant in order to sell two ounces of marijuana.  Dixon was brought along by Windham as an armed enforcer and as backup in case the drug deal turned sour.  During the drug transaction, Dixon discharged a firearm multiple times, ultimately resulting in the death of the third party.

Following the shooting, Dixon and Windham fled from the scene, at which time they discarded the marijuana and all firearms associated with the shooting.  Due to the diligent police work of Hattiesburg Police Department, the marijuana and firearms were all recovered shortly after the shooting.
