Snapped: Killer Couples

On Sunday, April 14, Oxygen’s Snapped: Killer Couples delves into the case of Brenda Dixon and her accomplice, Elbert Holder, who were involved in the murder of a nurse just a month before her wedding.

The episode, “Brenda Dixon and Elbert Holder,” focuses on the death of a nurse who was shot to death in a reported roadside robbery in rural Arkansas. As investigators delve into the case, they uncover odd details about the attack, and a confession paints a very different picture of what transpired.

The victim, Carla Knowlton Smith, was found dead in her Ford Expedition, with shotgun casings scattered on the ground. Dixon and Holder claimed that two black men in a Cadillac had accosted and robbed them, and that Smith had been shot during the encounter. However, police found inconsistencies in their story and began to suspect foul play.

It was later revealed that Dixon was Holder’s long-time girlfriend and the mother of his son. Testimonies indicated that Holder had conspired with Dixon and another individual, Greg Jenkins, to kill Smith due to her potential involvement in an insurance fraud matter in Louisiana. The trio devised a plan, and on the day of the murder, Holder and Smith pulled over to the side of the road, providing an opportunity for the assassins to strike.

The investigation uncovered a web of deceit, with Dixon playing a key role in the plot. She drove Jenkins to the location where Smith would be killed and provided him with a shotgun. After the shooting, Dixon and Jenkins fled the scene, and Dixon disposed of the shotgun and shells, hiding them in a car she had borrowed.

The episode also explores the impact of the murder on Smith’s family, particularly her daughter, who was left questioning Holder’s suspicious behavior in the aftermath of her mother’s death.

Snapped: Killer Couples airs on Oxygen at 6:00 pm on Sunday, April 14, 2024.
