Second Conway man arrested for murder of Bigelow man

Posted: February 14, 2014 - 7:34pm

Thamous K. Miller, 23, of Conway was arrested by the Arkansas State Police and charged with the murder of Carl Dixon, according to officials with the Perry County Sheriff’s Department.

Miller is the second Conway man arrested for the murder of Dixon. On Nov. 1, Danny J. Cannon, of Conway, was arrested Nov. 1 and has been charged with capital murder and profession of firearms.

Dixon, 57, of Bigelow, was killed April 8, 2013 during what officials described as a home invasion gone wrong.

He was the owner of Dixon Equipment Services.

Dixon’s wife, Mary, was at home during the time of the invasion. She told police at the time that she couldn’t give a good description of the suspect, but she followed them.

She told KATV she heard a loud bang, immediately woke up and walked into the hallway. There, she saw a gunman and chased him for a few steps before running into the bedroom, where she found her husband.

“I started screaming when I went out of the office,” Mary said, “and I went in my office and slammed the door, and I just went to pieces.”

Both Miller and Cannon are being held without bond.

I am sorry Carl Dixon is my daughters dad and I am a little emotional. Sorry Ali, I pray everyday for your family. I never knew how horrible living through something like this would be.

no worries

Please don't feel you have to apologize. My father was murdered a little over a year ago too. I know all about emotional. I hope for your family's sake that every single person involved gets caught and dealt with. It is so very hard to sit and feel like you, personally, need to do something, but can't. Good luck to you guys and I'm so, so sorry that this happened to you too.

Justice

I knew your father Larry from many years ago, I used to take my oldest daughter Carla skating in Conway and your dad always informed me she would be fine and he would keep an eye on everyone there. I was an over protective mom :( I hope soon your family get's closure to. Larry was a great guy and a great friend! I am praying for your family.
