Nearly two years after a 25-year-old was found dead on a Baldwin roadway, the man believed to be responsible has been arrested.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office has arrested 59-year-old Dennis Mixon for arson and murder. The arrest report does not give any additional information at this time regarding the motive for the murder, and how arson was involved in the death.

25-year-old Nikki Redden’s body was found on Tradeplex Circle on May 1, 2016. We were told at the time that there was foul play suspected in her death.

Court records show Mixon was arrested a month after Redden’s body was found, for grand theft and falsely identifying himself to law enforcement.

He was also charged with failing to comply with career offender requirements. He has been serving a multi-year sentence, after pleading guilty to those crimes in early 2017.
