"I would like them to spend the rest of their lives remembering what they did and remembering the lives that they ruined," says Sunday Blombergh's Father, Reign.

When Reign Blombergh heard the news that his daughter's estranged husband, Theo Conoly, was arrested Friday in connection with her murder and that more severe charges have been added against Herman and Ruby Evans, he says he wasn't surprised.

But as more is revealed into what led to his daughter's death, he's still searching for answers.

"When it's your child you know the reason that they're here is because of you. You know you didn't just contribute DNA, you someplace in your heart, you ask God for this. And to have it taken away, you question why," says Reign.

Reign says he knew from day one of her disapperance that he would never see Sunday alive again. A tough pill to swallow, even to this day.

"I was fortunate in the fact that I talked to her the day that it happened. Our last words to eachother, she called me Poppi, and she said I love you Poppi and I'll see you tonight and I said I love you too Sunday. Not everybody gets that, get to say those goodbyes like that," says Reign.

But in all the darkness that has surrounded the Blombergh family, Reign is holding on to his precious memories of his little girl.

"I don't want my daughter to be remembered for how she died. She was beautiful physically, but her spirit was unbelievable, she had a smile and a personality that sparked happiness and sparked life. That's what she needs to be remembered for."

Herman and Ruby Evans have now been charged with felony murder.

That means they face the death penalty or life in prison without parole.

Sunday's memorial service will be held this Sunday at Mission San Luis, in Tallahassee, starting at noon.

Update 2:30pm 7-9 by Heather Biance
Sunday Blombergh's father Reign Blombergh has confirmed that Sunday's estranged husband, Theo Conoly, has been arrested in St. Petersberg and charged with conspiracy to commit murder.

Mr. Blombergh says Conoly will be extradited to Tallahassee and then to Georgia.

An update to the others that have already been charged in Sunday's death:

Roy Herman Evans is now being charged with malicious murder, felony murder, assault and battery with a deadly weapon and conspiracy to conceal a death.

His wife Ruby Evans is being charged with malicious murder, felony murder, assault and battery and conspiracy to commit murder.

Kenneth Tomlinson is still facing a charge of conspiracy to conceal a death.

Mr. Blombergh said the felony charges against Ruby and Roy Herman Evans changes everything because now the only two options they have is either the death penalty or life in prison without the possibility of parole.

    He was in St.Pete with some family. I hate how people just jump to the conclusion that since his mother was charged with the murder he has to be charged. I know Theo Conoly and I know he would never do something so malicious to his own wife. He loved her, and never planned on divorcing her, he wanted to make things work for his daughter. He never would do anything to hurt Sunday, or anything to hurt his daughter, they were the world to him and would never want to hurt them.

    don't be downing the family of the accused...put your feet in their shoes...they didn't pull the trigger so to speak but that is still everyone doesn't feel the same but as a family you have to look at it from both sides and yes they do sympathized with the blombergh family...yes I know them and they are great people. just because one goes bad doen't mean they are all bad....They are just there to see what is going on....people just need to keep their opions to themselves!

    I find it interesting that friends and family of the accused continue to defend them. I understand it must be difficult, but when someone commits such a heinous crime, it is pretty indefensible. There comes a time when even family does not deserve your best wishes. If a family member or friend of mine did what these psychos did to Sunday, I would disown them. If anyone thinks what they did was OK, or are willing to "overlook" it...... then that says a whole lot about the company these freaks keep.

    If you bail some one out of jail they have your address.....if you call GBI and tell them where you are....its not fleeing.....when he was bailed out the people who needed to know where he was knew where he was....he wasnt hiding.

    Have they meant all along to arrest Conoly when they said "they anticipated more arrests?" because they just let him out of the Leon County Jail recently. Also, was he fleeing the country going down to St. Petersburgh? Where was he getting the money to go any darn where? Who was funding him?

    Theo had been residing in St. Pete since bonding out of Leon County Jail recently. He was in jail with 4 charges, all of which originally had bonds attached. All but one were dropped and he bonded out.

    My condolences to Sunday's family. At least now they have the ones who did this and took her from you. I hope they find justice and give them the full penalty. RIP Sunday!
