QUINCY, Ill. (AP) _ The father and stepmother of a man convicted in the shooting death of a 12-year-old boy face obstruction of justice charges following a decision by prosecutors in western Illinois.

Adams County State’s Attorney Jon Barnard refiled charges Friday against 42-year-old Stefan K. Crider Jr. and 40-year-old Julia A. Crider. Barnard had dropped similar charges last year to focus on the trial of Steson L. Crider.

A jury found Steson Crider guilty of first-degree murder in the death of Ray Humphrey Jr.

Steson Crider was sentenced to 65 years in prison.

The Quincy Herald-Whig reports Stefan and Julia Crider have a court hearing Aug. 25.

Prosecutors say the Criders provided money and a vehicle to help Steson Crider leave the state after the March 2015 shooting on Quincy’s northwest side.
