Trial Delayed For Woman Accused In 2011 Murder Of Boyfriend's Wife

The murder trial of a Madison County woman charged with killing her boyfriend's wife has been pushed back to March 17.

The hearing for Christina Marcum, the woman accused of killing Angela Frazier-Singleton in January of 2011, has been delayed due to scheduling conflicts, according to the Richmond Register. She will face murder and other charges.

Marcum and her then boyfriend, Jason Singleton, were charged in the death of Frazier-Singleton. He was sentenced to 30 years behind bars.

Singleton told the court Marcum strangled Frazier-Singleton and he helped dispose of the body. He said after consuming some prescriptions, he cut up his wife's body and tried to hide her remains. 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 was sentenced to 20 years for complicity to murder, five years for evidence tampering and five years for abuse of a corpse, with all of the sentences to be served consecutively. He was also sentenced for a standoff with Somerset Police, but those charges are to be served concurrently with the murder charges.

Marcum turned herself in to police in April of 2011 in the murder case.
