Arrests made in connection with 2001 slaying

first_imgPOMONA – Two new suspects are in custody in connection with the 2001 slaying of a Cal Poly Pomona sorority girl.MarkeishCummings-Dixon, 24, and Henry Singer, 27, could be charged and arraigned as soon as today in the murder of Christina Burmeister, who was found with her throat slashed inside her new pickup truck in the mountains above Azusa.The duo are the second and third suspects arrested in the case.Cummings-Dixon is the wife of James Winslow Dixon, who has been in custody since February charged with Burmeister’s murder.Detectives would not say Monday what roles they believe each of the suspects played or precisely what led investigators to them, saying there is still more investigation to be done.“We’re happy with the way things have progressed, but it’s still continuing,” said Los Angeles County sheriff’s Detective Philip Guzman.Burmeister, of Cerritos, was found with her throat slashed Aug. 18, 2001, inside her new Chevy pickup truck on a turnout off Highway 39. The 20-year-old Chi Omega sorority member left home the night before for a fraternity party in Pomona, but never arrived.A hooded woman was captured on a bank surveillance camera that night using Burmeister’s ATM card to withdraw money from a a Washington Mutual Bank in Montclair.Guzman would not reveal whether detectives believe Cummings-Dixon is that woman. Detectives arrested her husband, James Dixon, in February after his DNA was identified on a cigar butt found on the floorboard of Burmeister’s truck. He has pleaded not guilty to charges that could bring him the death penalty.Deputy District Attorney John Monaghan has said he believes at least three people were involved in the murder.Cummings-Dixon has been in custody in San Bernardino County since Sept. 1 on unrelated charges, Guzman said. It was not until after her arrest that detectives identified her as a suspect, Guzman said.Singer, of Rialto, was arrested Wednesday during a traffic stop. He was booked into Los Angeles County jail on suspicion of murder. His bail is set at $1 million.Detectives previously had their eye on Singer as a suspect, but didn’t identify him publicly until Monday.“There was a time when we suspected him and there was a time when we believed he was a suspect, but we only recently had enough evidence to arrest and charge him,” Guzman said.Guzman would not say if additional suspects are still being sought.Burmeister would have graduated from Cal Poly in 2002. She was an apparel marketing major who aspired to work in the fashion industry. m_pinion-whitt@dailybulletin.com(909) 483-9378 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
