Christina Marcum sentenced to 31 years in prison

MADISON COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Christina Marcum has been sentenced to 31 years in prison on charges relating to the 2011 death of Angela Frazier.

Back in late March, Marcum was found guilty of three separate charges: complicity to commit murder, complicity to tampering with physical evidence and hindering prosecution.

The jury recommended 30 years for Marcum at her trial - 20 years for the complicity to commit murder charge, five for complicity to tampering with evidence and five for hindering prosecution.

The extra year that was handed down by the judge was for promoting contraband while in jail during her court proceedings. Marcum's lawyer says she had tweezers and makeup on her while behind bars.

The defense also requested a new trial, but the judge denied the motions and went forward with the sentencing.

Marcum is believed to have worked together with Jason Singleton, Angela's husband, in order to kill Angela Frazier.
