    接着 here meant:
    then, after that.

    接着=whereafter

    i think is"after then"in this context.

    more accurately 接着 means: subsequently, right after that (the thing you mentioned just before this sentence). 接 has the meaning of "contiguous", as in 接壤 (border on, right next to it: 中国和尼泊尔接壤。).

    another example with 接 having the same meaning: 接连不断 (several things happen without breaking/things arranging right next to each other).
    e.g.飞机接连不断地飞过我家。The planes fly above my house one after another.
