Aspiring rapper who killed roommate and ate her lung sentenced to life


The Associated Press


COMPTON, Calif. (AP) - An aspiring rapper convicted of killing his roommate and eating part of her lung was sentenced Friday to life in prison without the possibility of parole, the district attorney's office said.

Superior Court Judge Jack Morgan also imposed a consecutive life sentence on Antron Singleton, 27, convicted in June of murder and aggravated mayhem for the April 2002 slaying of Tynisha Ysais.


Ysais, a mother of two, was found stabbed to death in the southeast Los Angeles apartment she shared with Singleton. Testimony showed that the 21-year-old woman's chest had been cut open and her right lung, which had been removed, appeared chewed and torn.

Singleton, whose stage name was Big Lurch, was arrested after he was spotted walking naked on a street with his mouth, chest and abdomen covered in blood. He had recently moved from Texas to Los Angeles and was recording a rap album.


Singleton had pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity and his lawyer, Milton Grimes, argued his client was in a psychotic state induced by the drug PCP at the time of the murder. The court, however, ruled in September that Singleton's drug use at the time of the crime did not diminish his responsibility for it.
