Newly released police documents detail murder case

It was a marriage police say led to murder.

27 NEWSFIRST has obtained police documents detailing their investigation into a man they say killed his wife, then left her remains in a field.

Police in Madison County charged Jason Singleton with murder just days after his wife Angela's remains were found, earlier this month.

The couple had only been married a few weeks.

In the documents we've obtained from the investigation, there are disturbing details about when Angela's body was found, what investigators saw during a search of Jason Singleton's house, along with alleged comments he made to police about doing "a terrible thing."

Angela Singleton's remains were found on January 19.

Police say they found them along a road in rural Madison County.

Police documents state the body had been dismembered, and placed in plastic bags.

Just days before, when she was reported missing, investigators say her car was found burning along Interstate 75.

Police say there was also a call to the Madison County Fire Department, reporting heavy smoke coming from the house Angela and Jason Singleton shared.

Police say when they searched the house, they found sections of the carpet had recently been cut out.

They say they also found a knife on the floor.

Police say they smelled smoke, and found remnants of a fire.

Jason Singleton allegedly told police on the day of his arrest, that he had "done something terrible. Too terrible to talk about."

Police say Singleton also stated he would be willing to tell them everything that happened, if they would give his ex-girlfriend a deal where she would not be arrested.

The documents show that woman, who has not been charged in the case, told police Jason Singleton admitted to her that he'd strangled Angela.

Police say they also searched Jason Singleton's car.

Singleton is being held on a $1 million bond.
