The British couple accused of murdering their daughter, whose corpse was discovered fused in a sofa, has been released on a $300,000 bond.

According to sources, Lacey Ellen was an autistic lady who was discovered merged on a sofa in her own feces.

Clay had to spend another night in jail since his bond was not paid on time. Clay walked free on Wednesday morning, some 12 hours after his wife, according to the Daily Mail, which received images.

Sheila glanced straight ahead after being released at 10.30 p.m. Tuesday and did not respond to the news outlet’s queries as she met with a bail bondsman. Sheila wore a blue-and-white blouse and blue slacks instead of an orange prison jumpsuit, and her blonde hair was tousled.

When asked why her daughter, who had locked-in syndrome and couldn’t move, sat on the sofa for a dozen years, the mother just stared.

Clay, meanwhile, was released at 10:25 a.m. on Wednesday when his $300,000 bail was resolved. Sheila returned to the jail with the same bondsman to pick up her husband soon before his release time, dressed in a red shirt and blue jeans.

Clay, dressed in black, stepped rapidly into a pickup truck parked near the jail reception, staring straight ahead. He remained silent.

The parents were apprehended after a grand jury in Clinton agreed with District Attorney Sam D’Aquilla that they should be charged with second-degree murder rather than manslaughter on Monday.

According to Coroner Dr Ewell Dewitt Bickham III, Lacey was discovered dead at her parents’ house in the tiny hamlet of Slaughter on January 3. She was partially nude and sitting erect in a pit surrounded by dung, urine, and insects while half immersed.
