EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) _ A southern Illinois man is set to be sentenced after he was convicted of first-degree murder last month for the deaths of a pregnant woman and a 4-year-old child.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports 57-year-old Kevin Reid’s sentencing hearing was scheduled for Tuesday afternoon in Madison County.

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

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

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