Uptown Child Murder: Suspect Went To Prison For Attacking Girl's Mom in 2014—"I’m gonna kill you! I’m gonna go to jail for you!"

Twelve-year-old Alexis Stubbs “looked like a little Shirley Temple. Little curls…Very happy all the time,” neighbor Reggie Taylor told the Sun-Times today.

Alexis died late last night after a man beat her with a hammer and stabbed her with a knife in her mother’s Uptown apartment building.

Hours after Alexis died, cops found their prime suspect, 31-year-old John Singleton, hiding in a porta-potty two blocks from the murder scene. A blood-soaked t-shirt was at his side.

Singleton has a long history of domestic violence.

An August 2012 domestic battery case ended with a 21-day sentence.

Another domestic battery case in November of that year was thrown out when the victim failed to appear in court.

Then, on August 23, 2014, he snapped during an argument with then-40-year-old Misty Stubbs—Alexis’ mother and his live-in girlfriend of the time.

He put both of his hands around Misty’s neck, choked her, and shoved her against closet doors and shelves, prosecutors said. He took away her cell phone so she couldn’t call the police.

“I’m gonna kill you,” he yelled. “I’m gonna go to jail for you.”

Misty Stubbs, bruised and with a painful throat, eventually got in touch with police.

A grand jury later returned a seven-count true bill against Singleton. Aggravated domestic battery-strangulation; aggravated battery-strangulation; four counts of domestic battery with a previous conviction; and unlawful restraint.

In his mugshot from that afternoon, the man looks enormous.

He stands with his back against the wall—so tall that he’s looking down at the camera. So heavy-set, his torso stretches wider than two cinderblocks on the wall behind him. His t-shirt is decorated with three human skulls, with $100 bills stretched across one’s mouth, another’s eyes and the third’s ears.

He pleaded guilty to the aggravated domestic battery case in December 2014 and shipped off to the Menard Correctional Center in downstate Chester, IL.

Singleton looks much thinner in his prison mugshot. Yet he still weighed 255 pounds, according to state records.

Within the past hour, authorities charged Singleton with murder in Alexis' death. He is due in bond court on Tuesday

  1. The loser deserves to be imprisoned in a porta potty for life.

    I'm so sorry for the little girl being hacked to death and I'm sorry that woman that woman put her child at risk by having the POS in her presence.

    Damn it, when will people learn that having a career criminal like this around kids is just asking for trouble???

    And WHEN WILL ILLINOIS, COOK COUNTY AND CHICAGO STOP RELEASING CRIMINALS LIKE THIS? When will the voters learn? Don't believe the lies coming from Rahm, Eddie, Foxx, Dart and the like. This city is out of control, and they don't give a shit about anyone but themselves.

    1. I think the blame lies with the judicial system. The police can charge them, but they have no control over the lawyers and judges.

    2. The laws have to be rewritten to keep him jail for a longer time. And the mama has to appear in court.

  2. Thank you CWB for getting the truth out there. Thank you CPD officers and staff for making this arrest.

    Please don't stop.

    1. And thank you to CPD for arresting him the time before, and the time before that, and probably even the time before that time. And thank you for re-arresting all of the scum our law makers let loose with violent records day in and day out.

      No this mother shouldn't have allowed this monster any where near her girl, but seeing as he nearly beat her to death and all he got was a few years in jail ... I do believe she was put in a terrible position many of us cannot fully comprehend. The law failed her, and her daughter too. Our laws are more concerned with offering multiple chances to certain individuals for turning their life around, than to protect those most vulnerable.

    2. The police don't put the perps in jail. Judges and prosecutors do. The police can only arrest, that's all.

  4. Meanwhile Kim foxx is all about criminals rights. All about releasing "poor" criminals because they can't make bond. Wtf. So she can then plead them out and basically "minor" offenses including robberies and "minor" assault will now basically go unpunished in Chicago.

    1. Anonymous read my mind. The mom must have taken the boyfriend back in. No woman should expose her child to violence and a no-good thuggish man.

  6. I'm not defending this guy or his actions, but I'm really sick of media pointing out when a suspect is over six feet tall or over 225 lbs as if it makes them a monster. His size is irrelevant; would it be less of a crime if he were 5'7" and 150 lbs?

    1. He beat the shit out of a 12-year-old with a hammer. He tossed women around like dolls. Yes. Yes, his size is relevant.

      Delete
    2. In a physical altercation, size is very relevant.

      Delete
    3. You're basically right, the girl would be just as dead and the crime would be just as abhorrent no matter what his size was, but it makes it more sensational and impactful to some to point out how large he was for some reason.

    4. Was there a restraining order against the perp? If not, why wasn't a restraining order issued against him?

    5. "it makes it more sensational and impactful to some to point out how large he was for some reason."

      You caught us. Burying that "sensationalism" at the end of the story.

    6. Now people know why a victim did not show up to a hearing years ago. I bet their family is not mourning a kid now...

    7. The victim likely did not show up in court because she knew if she did, he'd only be jailed for a few years and she'd have to face him on the streets. It is wrong to assume the women in these situations are somehow to blame. They are often without resources, and emotionally dependent upon the person who is abusing them. The mother of this young woman will have to live the rest of her life with the knowledge that the man in her life killed her little girl. Even the most heartless of people would find that a crushing burden.

  7. Foxx and Preckwinkle will change the rules so that a murderer cannot be charged until he has committed at least 10 murders.
