Stephanie and Alphonso Warren are pictured in court in 2009.

The mother of “Baby Angelica,” the infant found abandoned in a Toronto parking garage stairwell in 2008, has been killed in Jamaica. Her husband, who was criminally convicted of abandoning the baby, is in custody, a seemingly violent conclusion to a parenting saga from hell.

With the clock hands approaching midnight and a New Year on the horizon, 39-year-old Stephanie Warren of Toronto, mother to “Baby Angelica,” was stabbed to death — allegedly by her Jamaican husband, Alphonso Warren, according to the Jamaica Constabulary Force.

The couple is infamous for having repeatedly faced allegations of mistreating their children in Canada and abroad. The mummified remains of a later child of the couple, a 2-year-old known as “Baby Joshua,” were found in 2012, zipped inside a suitcase in the Warrens’ inner-city Kingston, Jamaica, home.

Jamaican police were called to the couple’s apartment around 11:20 p.m. this New Year’s Eve to investigate a domestic dispute.

TORONTO POLICE

There was a summer wedding. Then in September, the newlyweds bought their first home. They were about to host their first Christmas — and just beginning to lay the foundation of the rest of their lives.

But last Friday, Rosemarie Junor was stabbed in a PATH Shoppers Drug Mart, just steps from where she worked, in what appears to have been a random attack.

Junor died of her injuries in hospital Wednesday night. On Thursday, Toronto police identified the 28-year-old, known to friends as Kim.

(…)

Rohinie Bisesar, 40, was arrested Tuesday afternoon in connection with the attack and initially charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon. Junor was listed in “grave” condition in hospital for several days before succumbing to her injuries at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, police said.

The homicide unit has now taken over the investigation, and charges against Bisesar have been upgraded to second-degree murder. Her next court appearance is scheduled for Friday morning.

Born in Trinidad to a family of South Asian descent, Junor was the youngest of four siblings and lived in Canada for more than 20 years. Her 44-year-old brother described her as “full of life” and “outgoing” — a young woman who poured that energy into soccer and South Indian dance.

CBC News has confirmed that Ernsting worked for the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research.

He was also an adjunct professor at Ryerson University where he worked with graduate students in the electrical and computer engineering department.
