Dixon murder for hire retrial: Day 13

LUBBOCK, TX - Dr. Thomas Michael Dixon, the man accused of hiring a hit man to kill Lubbock Dr. Joseph Sonnier took the stand Wednesday at his murder for hire retrial.

Dixon explains the silver bars, which are suspected of being used to pay for the murder, were used to start a business.

A business with now convicted murderer David Shepard.

Dixon also spoke about how he met both Shepard and Richelle Shetina, the woman involved in a love triangle with Dixon and Sonnier.

Shepard placed cameras around Sonnier's house to prove he was cheating on Shetina.

Dixon told the court he never wanted Shepard to harm Sonnier.

He will continue his testimony Thursday morning.
