Thomson, who is believed to have been in a common-law relationship with Neville.

When police arrived to the 300 block of Yates Road home June 18, 2013 at 12:37 a.m., they discovered the body of the 27-year-old mother of two.

Her children—8 and 10-years old—were found unharmed, and also inside the home. They were relocated with their extended family.

Until his recent arrest, Thomson had little more than half a dozen speeding tickets and driving infractions on his record.
