Richmond Man Makes Plea Deal In 2011 Murder Of His Wife

The Richmond man accused in the killing and dismemberment of his wife entered a guilty plea to complicity to murder and other charges Tuesday.

Singleton had originally be charged with the 2011 murder of Angela Frazier-Singleton, 24. The state "acknowledged" Singleton's claim that Christina Marcum, the other defendant in the case, was the "hands-on" strangler Frazier-Singleton. He pleaded guilty to complicity to commit murder, two counts of tampering with physical evidence, and abuse of corpse.

Frazier-Singleton's dismembered body was found Jan. 19, 2011, in trash bags at the end of Tattler Branch Road in the Valley View community.

Singleton's formal sentencing is set for August 23.

A new trial date has not been set in Marcum's case yet, according to Commonwealth's Attorney David Smith. Marcum and Singleton originally were co-defendants, but Judge William Clouse granted a motion to sever their cases.
