Man Taunts Girlfriend Thru Text After Killing Her Daughter For The Worst Reason Ever
A 31-year-old Chicago man stabbed his girlfriend's 12-year-old daughter to death, leaving her drenched in blood and gasping for breath. John Singleton later cruelly texted the girl's mother, "See wat u made me do ... u gon pay for this."[sic]

Singleton was held without bail Tuesday on a first-degree murder charge in the death of 12-year-old Alexis Stubbs, who considered the man a father figure.

Singleton was paroled in April after serving time for a 2014 incident, when he had choked Alexis' mother. The former couple kept in touch while he was in prison and later reconciled. 

The man was released from a halfway home on June 7 and came to stay with Alexis and her mother in their North Side apartment.

The apartment building where they lived was run by a housing organization with strict rules, which stated that visitors could not stay for longer than a week and anyone on parole was not allowed to live there. 

Singleton had been there five days and wanted to live there, although he knew his girlfriend could get kicked out. 
The couple began arguing about cigarettes that then led into a fight about him living in the apartment. Alexis and her mother at one point left the building to get cigarettes for a neighbor, but the couple continued to argue over the phone. Alexis' mother then told Singleton to get out of her apartment.

They returned home and Alexis got out of the car to deliver cigarettes to her neighbor. She was later walking out of the building toward her mother's car when Singleton pushed her into the lobby, grabbed her by the hair and threw her to the ground.

Singleton pulled a hammer out of his pocket and raised it towards Alexis, grabbing her by the hair and pushing her upstairs into the apartment.

Alexis' mother saw that her daughter was inside the building with Singleton and called 911, worried he would hurt her.

Singleton began to call Alexis' mother repeatedly, threatening them both as the woman could hear her daughter screaming in the background.

Police officers arrived and Singleton took off, carrying a bloody hammer and a knife.

Alexis crawled out of the apartment covered in blood and unable to speak. She had been stabbed more than 11 times all over her body. She was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

After fleeing the building, Singleton sent Alexis' mother taunting text messages.

"See wat u made me do," the texts read, according to prosecutors. "I really hope DCFS take her from u if only she survive wat I done to her."

Another text reads, "U (expletive) made me kill my only child ... believe it or not u gon pay for this."

Singleton was later discovered hiding in a portable toilet. He was arrested and taken into custody, where he admitted in a videotaped interview that he hit Alexis multiple times with a hammer and stabbed her with a knife.

In addition to the murder charges, Singleton faces charges of aggravated kidnapping and aggravated battery to a police officer.

Singleton has a long criminal record that includes other domestic violence cases and resisting arrest.
