78 To Life!

Updated: Dec 1, 2021

A Franklin County judge sentenced Columbus gang member Christian Dillion, 23, to spend the next 78 years in prison. Dillion will not be eligible for parole until he is 96 years old.

A jury found Dillion guilty of the 2018 cold-blooded murders of Marlarzia Jones-Mattox, 21, and her 23-year-old boyfriend, Keith Williams.

At the time of the shooting, Marlarzia was 35 weeks pregnant with the couple's baby who miraculously survived. The child, named Markeith after his parents, has cerebral palsy and other serious health issues.

Mario Wade, 22, the co-defendant in this case, stands trial next month.

Tyra Mattox, Marlarzia's stepmother, was in court Tuesday morning when the sentence was read. In this interview with The Sussi Report, Tyra says Dillion never showed a bit of remorse.
