They waited for many years earlier than Cecilia conceived for the second infant in 2015. Sadly, Cecilia died in the course of baby delivery in April 2016.

They fell in love, and quickly after, she became pregnant for him.
When he requested her to marry him, Joy said the solely condition would be if he eliminates his daughter, Cecilia.
Joy instructed Thompson that Cecilia typically seems to her in her dream whenever she sleeps over at his house.
Thompson carried out the dastard act on February 22nd.

His dastard act was once determined with the aid of one of their neighbors.
Upon his arrest, Thompson said he regrets doing Joy’s bidding.
He attributed his heinous motion to an overpowering love for Joy and the fear of losing her and the pregnancy she had for him.
When contact, Joy who is presently on the run, sounded unrepentant.
She said she only told Thompson to take his daughter away considering the fact that she can’t stay in the same house with her.
According to her, what Thompson did was once the best.
“I informed him that if I have to marry him, Mercy will have to leave,” she asserted, “[because] she continually show up in my desires every time I skip a night time in her father’s house.
