A former Collinsville man will spend the rest of his life in prison for killing a 19-year-old woman and her 4-year-old nephew almost ten years ago. Circuit Judge James Hackett at the Criminal Justice Center in Edwardsville sentenced 58-year-old Kevin Reid on Tuesday. He was found guilty of two counts of murder and a count of intentional homicide of a child last month.
19-year-old “Tweety” Parker and “C.J.” Toney were found at the bottom of cistern on Reid’s property in March 2008. Authorities say the victims were actually killed in November 2005 over a botched drug deal. Authorities say Reid stabbed the victims and threw their bodies in the cistern.
