A 31-year-old man was charged Friday with unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, accused of threatening a woman’s life and sending her a video of himself with a gun.
Killeen police said Jason Ronald Dixon Jr. threatened to kill a woman Aug. 29 at her former place of business in Killeen before sending her the video, which clearly identified the make, model and serial number of the weapon.
According to the witness, Dixon said he was waiting outside of her work to kill her, but she had previously moved her business to another location, according to the affidavit. Police said Dixon had been previously convicted in Bell County of felony possession of a controlled substance in March 2013 and sentenced to five years in prison.
Dixon was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke and assigned a $100,000 bond.
He was being held in the Bell County Jail on Friday.
