RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) -- A jury has convicted a Richmond woman of charges in the slaying and dismemberment of her ex-boyfriend's wife.

Media reported jurors found 30-year-old Christina Marcum guilty of complicity to commit murder, complicity to tampering with physical evidence and hindering prosecution in the 2011 death of Angela Frazier-Singleton. Her dismembered body was found in trash bags about a week after she was last seen alive.

Marcum's attorney had argued that she knew about the slaying, but didn't participate in it and didn't go to police because she feared her former co-defendant, Jason Singleton. Prosecutors said the two worked together to kill Frazier-Singleton.

Jason Singleton pleaded guilty last year to complicity to murder and is serving a 30-year prison sentence.

Jurors recommended Marcum serve 30 years. Formal sentencing will be May 23.
