A former Williamsburg woman, whose remains were found in a Madison County field Wednesday, and her husband, who was arrested by Somerset police Thursday after allegedly stealing a car and then holding four people hostage at gunpoint, obtained their marriage license in Whitley County last month.
Marriage license records in the Whitley County Clerk’s Office show that Angela N. Frazier, 25, and Jason E. Singleton, 34, of Richmond, obtained their marriage license on Dec. 20.
Frazier, whose maiden name was apparently Canada, listed her address as 330 Jim Walker Road, Williamsburg. She listed her occupation as assistant manager.
Whitley County Clerk Kay Schwartz said that while the marriage license was obtained from her office, the marriage certificate, which is located at the bottom of the license, was never returned to her office so the marriage could be officially registered.
Under state statutes, marriage licenses are only valid for 30 days including the date that the licenses are issued.
Once a certificate is returned to Schwartz’s office and recorded, it is filed with the bureau of vital statistics in Frankfort.
Frazier, whose is being identified by police as Angela Singleton, was found dead about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in rural Madison County near the Jessamine County line.
Officials haven’t released her cause of death, but are investigating the case as a homicide.
Angela Singleton disappeared Sunday. Her vehicle was found burning on I-75 near mile marker 101.
A Pulaski County district judge entered a not guilty plea Friday afternoon for Jason Singleton, stemming from charges related to his armed standoff in Somerset Thursday. He hasn’t been charged in connection with his wife’s killing.
Thursday afternoon, he allegedly stole a car near Somerset Mall, and then held four people at gunpoint at the Super Service trucking company in Somerset.
He surrendered to police about 15 minutes later, and was charged with first-degree wanton endangerment, first-degree unlawful imprisonment, theft by unlawful taking-auto, disorderly conduct, carrying a concealed deadly weapon, and criminal mischief, according to the Pulaski County Detention Center website. On Friday, he was charged with his wife’s murder.
A Pulaski County judge has set a $100,000 bond in the case.
Singleton’s funeral is set to take place in Whitley County Monday.
