Williams sentenced for killing Clayton man



DAYTON – Prosecuting Attorney Mat Heck, Jr. announced June 21 that Bryson Tyrone Williams, 19, of Dayton, was sentenced to a total of 26 years‐to‐life in prison for the shooting death of Terion Dixon that occurred on November 11, 2016.

On the night of Friday, November 11, 2016 Williams fired a number of rounds at the victim, striking and killing 21‐year‐old Terion Lamb Dixon, of Clayton, who was standing outside a friend’s car in the 1700 block of Germantown Street.

On January 13, 2017 Williams was indicted on:

• Two counts of Murder

• Two counts of Felonious Assault

• One count of Discharge of a Firearm On or Near Prohibited Premises

All of the counts included 3‐year firearm specifications.

On June 14, 2017, after a trial, the jury found Williams guilty as charged on all counts and specifications.

Williams was sentenced to 15 years‐to‐life for the murder conviction, plus an additional 3 years for the firearm specification, which by law must be served consecutively. In addition, Williams was sentenced to 8 years in prison for discharging the firearm over a roadway, which was also ordered to be served consecutively.

“We believe the sentence ordered today by Judge Skelton is wholly appropriate and deserved. People who commit murder should be incarcerated for as long as possible,” said Prosecutor Heck.
