Dixson pleads not guilty in shootings

Calvin Dixson, the man accused of shooting a Fostoria mother and daughter last month, appeared in court Tuesday for an arraignment.

At his arraignment, Dixson, 37, entered pleas of not guilty to charges of aggravated murder, a special felony, and attempted aggravated murder, a first-degree felony.

His $1.5 million dollar bond was continued by Seneca County Common Pleas Court Judge Steve Shuff.

Dixson was arrested July 29 in Cleveland, the day after he allegedly killed Lisa Stowers, 50, and injured her daughter Tyeesha Ferguson, 36, during a shooting in the driveway at a Bannister Street residence. Both women suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

Ferguson, Dixson’s estranged girlfriend, had filed a protection order against Dixson before the shooting.

If convicted, Dixson could face life in prison without parole.
