The trial of a 57-year-old State Park Place, Illinois man has begun in Madison County Court. Kevin Reid, formerly of the 9,000 block of Collinsville Road, is charged in the 2005 deaths of 19-year-old Anquiatte Parker and her 4-year-old cousin Cermin Toney Jr. Reid was charged in 2008 after their bodies were found.
Reid is charged with two counts of murder, one count of intentional homicide of an unborn child, and two counts of concealment of a homicidal death. Investigators allege he placed both victims in an underground cistern on his former property, knowing it would cause their deaths. If convicted of murder, he is looking at a minimum of 20 years in prison.
