Man dies after stabbing in Little Elm apartment

LITTLE ELM — Police have not arrested a suspect in connection with a stabbing death Sunday night at The Luxe 3Eighty apartments in the 26400 block of East University Drive, according to Little Elm police Lt. Larry Denison, who oversees the department's criminal investigation division.  

Christopher Singh, a 31-year-old Frisco man, died from a stab wound to the chest at about 9:20 p.m. Sunday night at Medical City Denton, medical examiner records show. In a town of Little Elm press release, police said he suffered serious wounds as a result of an argument with his spouse, who was also hospitalized with injuries that night.

Singh's death has been ruled a homicide, according to Troy Taylor, Denton chief death investigator for the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office. Denison said Monday that police could not confirm whether the woman stabbed the man. 

"I'm not going to say that we even have a suspect," he said. "It's an active investigation." 

The town of Little Elm issued a news release at about 8 a.m. Monday, saying police responded to a domestic dispute at the apartment complex at about 8:20 p.m. Sunday. 

The release said the man suffered serious wounds "apparently as a result of the argument." Taylor said he could not confirm how many wounds the man suffered or what type of weapon was used in the incident.

Singh was treated at Medical City Denton until he was pronounced dead about an hour later. The woman suffered injuries that weren't life threatening, and she was treated at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Denton, the press release said.  

Singh's 27-year-old brother, Richard Singh, said the town press release incorrectly indicated that his brother was married to the woman. They had been dating for about two years and lived together in the apartment, he said. 

Richard Singh, a Dallas resident, said the woman was the mother of the couple's 11-month-old son. Christopher Singh also had a 3-year-old son from a previous relationship, he said. 

Richard Singh said police previously have been called about disturbances at his brother's apartment. Another woman who lived in Christopher Singh's building said she's heard several disputes coming from his third-floor apartment. 

But Denison said he could not confirm those accounts. 

Richard Singh said his family moved from New York to Texas in 2006. His brother most recently worked for Service First Mortgage, he said. 

"He left behind a mother, a father,  a little sister, me," said Richard Singh, who was standing outside of his brother's apartment. "We just moved out here because my parents were trying to make a better life for us ... and this is what happened man."
