Trial begins for woman in Richmond slaying

RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) — The trial has begun for a Richmond woman charged in the 2011 slaying and dismemberment of her ex-boyfriend's wife.

Media reports say attorneys gave vastly different accounts of what happened during opening statements Monday in Madison Circuit Court.

Prosecutors said Christina Marcum is a "masterful manipulator" and conspired with Jason Singleton to kill his wife, Angela Frazier Singleton.

Defense attorneys said Singleton acted alone to kill his wife. They said Marcum witnessed the slaying, but didn't help and didn't go to police because she feared she might be targeted.

Singleton pleaded guilty to complicity to murder in May and is serving a 30-year sentence.

Investigators found Frazier-Singleton's body in trash bags Jan. 19, 2011, about a week after she was last seen alive..
