As Christina Marcum's murder trial moved into day four, the attention shifted to an audio recording of her Pulaski County prison visit to then-boyfriend Jason Singleton.

Singleton, currently serving 30 years for pleading guilty in his wife's murder, was told by Marcum in the recording that she loved him and couldn't stand Nick Marcum, her husband at the time.

She also mentioned questions being asked by investigators, but that she wouldn't answer them without a lawyer.

Records show that Marcum's first conversation with police occurred on January 20, 2011, when she told officers she didn't want to speak without an attorney due to possible repercussions from Singleton

Between then and February 10, 2011, documents revealed that Marcum made seven trips to see Singleton in prison.

On that date, she said she wanted to tell officers everything, according to police audio.
