Markeith Loyd

Markeith Loyd, 41, is accused of killing his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Sade Dixon, 24, in December 2016 and Orlando police Lt. Debra Clayton, 42, in January 2017. Loyd faces two counts of first-degree murder in the killings of Dixon and Clayton; one count of unlawfully killing an unborn child; attempted murder, aggravated assault, and carjacking with a firearm and a misdemeanor resisting arrest without violence charge. On the night of the Dixon's homicide, the affidavit said Dixon received a phone call and went outside to talk. That's when deputies say Loyd opened fire, hitting the pregnant Dixon and her brother Ronald Stewart. Stewart was critically wounded. Dixon and her unborn child died. Clayton was approaching Loyd on January 9th when, prosecutors say, he fatally shot her at a Wal-Mart at John Young Parkway and Princeton Avenue. Loyd is also charged in a separate case from August with three counts of aggravated assault with a firearm, court records show. This trial is for the killing of Sade Dixon
