A former Boy Scout troop volunteer will be sentenced in May after being convicted of a dozen counts of sexual abuse involving a teenage boy.

St. Clair County jurors Thursday convicted 55 year old John Demers after less than two hours of deliberation.

The charges involved a teenager who said Demers had inappropriate contact with him between 2005 and 2011.

Demer's attorney says his client maintains his innocence.

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A coroner is hoping toxicology tests determine what killed a southwestern Illinois teenager whose body was found on a bed near an infant.

St. Clair County Coroner Rick Stone tells the Belleville News-Democrat that 19-year-old Dyilion Rojas was found dead Thursday in a home after someone anonymously called police to report a possible overdose.

The 6-month-old baby was found beside Rojas and was later turned over to a relative.

The connection between Rojas and the infant isn't clear.

An autopsy is planned, and results of lab screenings of his blood aren't expected to be available for weeks.

Belleville is getting a new grocery store, but only after a contentious city council meeting.

Fox 2 reports Mayor Mark Eckert cast the deciding vote at the meeting to approve 200,000 dollars in tax-increment financing for the Ruler Foods. Ruler Foods is a discount store owned by Kroger's. The TIF money will be used to tear down the vacant building on the lot. Eckert says demolition should begin in March and the store could open by September.
