Funeral arrangements set for Richmond murder victim

Funeral arrangements have been finalized for a Richmond woman whose purported husband is accused of murdering her.

Services for Angela Nicole Canada Singleton, 25, will be held at 1 p.m. Monday at Croley Funeral Home in Williamsburg. Visitation will begin at 11 a.m. Monday.

Ms. Singleton lived in Williamsburg before moving to Richmond recently. She had two children, Kaylie Frazier and Alliey Canada. She is also survived by her parents, Nancy Arlene Canada and Billy Roger Canada, both of Williamsburg.

Police have charged Jason E. Singleton, 34, with Angela Singleton's murder.

She went missing after an argument with Jason Singleton on Sunday, state police have said. On Sunday night, her Nissan Altima was found burning on the northbound side of Interstate 75 in Fayette County, and on Wednesday, a body later identified as hers was found in a field off Tattlers Branch Road near Valley View and the Kentucky River in western Madison County.

Jason Singleton, 34, was arrested Thursday in Somerset after police say he pulled a gun on a security guard at Somerset Mall, then stole a car, wrecked it and ran to a nearby trucking office and took four men hostage for about 15 minutes before giving himself up.

From that series of incidents, he is charged with four counts of wanton endangerment, four counts of unlawful imprisonment, disorderly conduct, car theft and criminal mischief. On Friday, Judge Jeffrey Scott Lawless entered a not guilty plea for Singleton during an arraignment in Pulaski District Court.

State police initially referred to Angela Singleton as Jason's wife, but they said Friday that that might be incorrect. The two applied for a marriage license on Dec. 20 in Whitley County, but the marriage certificate to be signed by the person who performs the ceremony was never returned to the county clerk's office.
