Former Amarillo Plastic Surgeon in Lubbock Court

Former Amarillo plastic surgeon Thomas Michael Dixon was in a Lubbock County courtroom on Friday for a pre-trial hearing.

Dixon is currently in the Lubbock county jail on charges of capital murder.

Lubbock police say he hired David Neal Shepard, to kill Dr. Joseph Sonnier.

Police believe the motif was a love triangle between the two doctors and a woman. 

Shepard recently pleaded guilty to killing Dr. Sonnier and sentenced to life in prison.

Dixon’s trial is tentatively set to begin May first.
