HALIFAX -- Halifax Regional Police have charged two men with first degree murder, and a third man with manslaughter, in relation to the homicide of a Halifax man in June.
On June 29, at approximately 10:20 p.m., police received a report of a stabbing at the Esso gas station at 6020 Young St. in Halifax.
Police say a man approached 47-year-old Terrance Thomas Dixon of Halifax, who was in his parked vehicle, and stabbed him. The suspects then fled in a vehicle, which was later found abandoned nearby.
Dixon sustained serious injuries and was transported to hospital by ambulance. He died on July 4. Following an autopsy, Dixon’s death was ruled a homicide.
At approximately 8 a.m. Tuesday, police arrested 42-year-old Paul Shane Miller of Dartmouth in the 100-block of Main St. in Dartmouth, and 42-year-old James Arthur Williams of Halifax in the 100-block of Lacewood Dr. in Halifax.
On Wednesday, police announced 39-year-old Ian Matthew Huskins, currently in custody at the Central Nova Scotia Correctional Facility, is also facing a charge of manslaughter.
Miller and Williams will appear in Halifax Provincial Court on Wednesday to face one count each of first-degree murder.
Huskins will appear in Halifax Provincial Court on Wednesday to face a charge of manslaughter.
He is currently in custody in connection with another homicide that occurred just three days after Dixon was killed.
Huskins was arrested on August 24 in connection with the murder of 40-year-old Trevor Charles Miller on Canada Day at a residence on Cork St. in Halifax. He was charged with one count of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder in connection with Miller's death.
Police say the investigation into Dixon’s murder is ongoing, and anyone with information is asked to call police or Crime Stoppers.
