Jason Singleton will spend the next three decades of his life paying for his involvement in his wife's murder.

On Friday the Madison County man was sentenced to 30 years in prison after admitting in the Spring to trying to cover up the death of his wife Angela Singleton, by dismembering her body and hiding the evidence in garbage bags in a farm field.

Singleton said in court earlier this year that it was girlfriend Christina Tompkins Marcum who killed his wife.

Marcum is currently being held in Madison  County Detention Center.

Her trial date is set for March 3rd of 2014.

Singleton was already serving a 10 year sentence after being convicted of holding a group of people hostage at a Somerset business in 2011.

The Commonwealth's Attorney's Office says Singleton will not be allowed to appeal his case as part of his original plea agreement.
