Court documents have revealed disturbing details in the case of a Madison County man accused of murdering his wife.
A Kentucky State Police search warrant nearly 12 pages long details what investigators say they found inside Jason Singleton's home shortly after they found his wife's dismembered body in a rural Madison County field last month.
Angela Frazier-Singleton, 25, was reported missing by her mother on January 17. Two days later, her body was found in a field on Tattler's Branch Road in Madison County. According to Kentucky State Police documents obtained by LEX 18, Singleton had been killed, dismembered and placed into plastic bags.
The next day, State Police went to the couple's home on Forest Hill Drive. The search warrant reads investigators found a knife lying on the floor just inside the house. Carpet was also cut out from the floor, and it smelled like something had been burning. Detectives say they took power tools, knives, and "any other item that could be used as a cutting or chopping instrument."
That same day, Jason Singleton was accused of holding four people hostage in Pulaski County. When Kentucky State Police went to Singleton about his wife's murder, he allegedly told them "he did something very bad" and he had red marks on his hands that looked like chemical burns.
In the search warrant, Kentucky State Police also allege Singleton's former girlfriend, Christina Thompkins, may have been involved in Angela Singleton's death. Christina Thompkins apparently told detectives Jason Singleton strangled his wife.
Christina Thompkins has not been charged by police in connection with this murder investigation.
Jason Singleton is currently being held Pulaski County Detention Center awaiting his next court appearance for the hostage standoff.
