Just after noon on Thursday, a pregnant 24-year-old Simon was stabbed to death at her mother’s residence where she had gone to visit and was preparing to cook curry.
Thomas fled the scene shortly after committing the crime and left the murder weapon behind.
The entire ordeal was witnessed by the woman’s nine-year-old sister.
The mother, Letitia Fields, said she received the news while at work at the Memorial Gardens Funeral Home.
She told the News Room that ‘Terrence’ would usually abuse Simon and during a misunderstanding last year, he had threatened to kill her. Simon had ended the relationship and moved on with another man.
The mother said the reason for the murder may be out of anger that Simon had become pregnant for someone else.
