Battle over evidence continues in Madison Co. murder case

Angela & Jason Singleton

RICHMOND, Ky. (WKYT) - The battle over evidence in the case of a deadly love triangle in Madison County headed back to court Thursday.

The case involves Jason Singleton and his ex-girlfriend Christina Marcum who are accused of killing Singleton's wife. Angela Frazier-Singleton's dismembered body was found near the Kentucky River in January 2011.

Marcum's lawyer is asking for his client's statements to police be thrown out because her legal representation was not present during her statements.

Three recorded statements given by Marcum are potentially on the chopping block. WKYT's Sean Evans reports no definitive decision was made by the judge Thursday.

Kentucky State Police detective Brian Reeder took the stand Thursday to give testimony regarding the interviews with Marcum.

In court, attorneys pointed out that Marcum requested an attorney's presence numerous times in the two-and-a-half interview. But the detective testified that Marcum was in no way held against her will and even accepted and placed phone calls during the course of the interview.

Singleton's lawyer have asked the judge for two separate trials arguing Marcum made incriminating statements about his client and he would not be able to receive a fair trial unless the cases were split.

The case is scheduled to go to trial on March 11.
