Southern Illinois Man Convicted In Teen’s Death
PINCKNEYVILLE, Ill. (AP)- A southern Illinois man faces up to 60 years in prison now that he’s been convicted in the 2010 killing of a 15-year-old girl.
Perry County Circuit Judge James Campanella found 18-year-old James Glazier guilty Monday of a count of first-degree murder in the killing of Sidnee Stephens. Glazier had waived his right to a jury trial.
Glazier’s conviction leaves only 16-year-old Robbie Mueller still facing trial. Mueller has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder, kidnapping and home invasion.
A third suspect, Carl Dane, pleaded guilty last year. He was found dead in his jail cell the day he was to be transferred to prison to begin serving a 60-year sentence.
Glazier’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for Sept. 13.
