Thomas Michael Dixon retrial: Day 9

LUBBOCK, TX - Officials confirm the state will not seek the death penalty in the Dr. Thomas Michael Dixon murder for hire retrial.

Dixon is accused of hiring David Shepard to kill Dr. Joseph Sonnier.

Sonnier was dating Dixon's ex-girlfriend, Richelle Shetina.

Shetina was on the stand Thursday morning, testifying about her relationships with Dixon and Sonnier. 

She said her relationship with Dixon was up and down. 

"When it was good, it was good," said Shetina. "When it was bad, it was bad."

Shepard and Shetina met one time, and Shetina said she didn't care for him, describing him as a "con-man."
