Two more people have been charged in connection with burning a woman and leaving her for dead in the middle of a Muskingum County road.
Monica J. Washington, 24, and Lafonse Darney Dixon, 33, of Canton were charged with one count each of murder with two death specifications, one count of kidnapping and one count of aggravated arson.
Washington also was charged with possessing drug paraphernalia after she was found to have a glass pipe for smoking crack cocaine in her shoe.
Katrina Marie Culberson, 20, faced the same charges on Friday.
Celeste Fronsman, 29, was found burned with a rope around her neck along state Route 208 near Steel Hill Road, between Dresden and Adamsville, on Aug. 26. She was taken to the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, where she died.
Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz called it one of the most gruesome cases he had ever seen.
“Nobody deserves to die or be killed, but in the manner that this young lady was killed was very violent,” Lutz said. “Words can't describe those things. It was a horrific act.”
Washington, Dixon and Culberson were all being held in the Stark County Jail. If convicted, all three will be eligible for the death penalty.
