The last contact anyone had with Frazier was at 9 a.m. Jan. 16 when she called a friend from the home, according to Smith.
Visits to the jail
Frazier was reported missing by her mother Jan. 17, 2011, and her body was found Jan. 19, 2011.
Singleton was arrested Jan. 20 in Pulaski County after holding several people hostage while armed with a gun. He was wearing clothing and in possession of a credit card belonging to Nick Marcum, Christina husband.
She admitted to police she had given Singleton those items to help him avoid apprehension, according to the prosecutor’s notice.
The notice goes on to state that Christina visited Singleton at the Pulaski County Detention Center and used a false name to put money into his jail account.
“She visited Jason at the jail and discussed certain strategies they could employ in avoiding responsibility in the case, including Christina’s idea to try to have sex with the lead detective in an attempt to influence his investigation,” the document stated.
In addition to providing evidence that proves a motive, the Commonwealth’s Attorney Office also asked the court to allow testimony about these events because of a proposed defense Marcum’s attorneys may be presenting to the jury.
Marcum’s lawyers have filed notice stating they will attempt to prove Marcum suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder because she endured domestic violence at the hands of Singleton.
“The above evidence negates the notion that Christina was a victim and an unwilling participant in Jason Singleton’s crime,” the prosecution’s notice states.
Clouse agreed that the events outlined in the notice could be used as evidence during the trial to rebut the defense’s allegation that Christina feared Singleton.
Also permitted during the trial will be testimony that Marcum threatened and followed a friend who made a statement to police during the murder investigation. Marcum was charged in Fayette County with intimidating a participant in the legal process.
