Baltimore man guilty in high school reunion stabbing

May 21, 2012|By Tricia Bishop

A 29-year-old Baltimore man was convicted of second-degree murder for stabbing another man to death at a Walbrook High School reunion nearly two years ago, the Baltimore State’s Attorney’s Office announced Monday.

A city jury found James L. Dixon, of the 900 block of Kevin Road, guilty on Wednesday. It was his second trial on murder charges in the death of 23-year-old Carrington McNutt, who was stabbed in the neck and torso at the Patapsco Arena, where the reunion — attended by by roughly 900 people from the 1995 through 2005 graduating classes — was held.  Dixon’s first trial ended with a hung jury in November 2011.

Just two witnesses came forward, despite the packed arena, prosecutors said.

Dixon faces a maximum of 30 years at his sentencing, set for June 29.
