Barton-Pickens suffered a deadly gunshot wound during the incident.

Court documents show Dixon may have been retaliating for an earlier alleged robbery possibly involving the victim’s relative and another man.

The man, prosecutors alleged, then went with Dixon to the victim’s house and shot it up.

In addition to the murder and weapons counts, prosecutors said Dixon was also charged with possession of cocaine and fentanyl and felony fleeing and eluding, according to WLWT.


The suspect was being held in lieu of a $2.5 million bond.

He is next scheduled to appear in court on July 24.
