Illinois Man Gets Life in Madison County Killings

Associated Press

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) – A southern Illinois man has been sentenced to life in prison in the 2005 deaths of a pregnant woman and a 4-year-old child whose bodies were found years later in a cistern.

Fifty-year-old Kevin Reid was sentenced Tuesday in Madison County.

Reid was found guilty last month in the 2005 deaths of 19-year-old Anquiaette Parker and her 4-year-old cousin, Cermen Toney Jr.

Parker was pregnant and had been babysitting Toney when the two disappeared.

Authorities say Reid hid their bodies in a cistern near his home. A crew clearing brush in the area found the bodies in 2008.
