ALTON, Ill. (AP) — An Illinois man accused of playing a role in last weekend's shooting death of a St. Louis man was being held Wednesday in lieu of $1 million bond.

Prosecutors in Madison County charged Antoine Parker, 33, of Belleville with three counts of murder and one count apiece of armed robbery and armed violence.

State's Attorney Tom Gibbons said Parker was not the gunman in last Saturday's death of 39-year-old Melvin L. Hayes. The victim's body was found behind an abandoned Alton home. Gibbons said Parker was charged based on accountability for his role.

Gibbons said the shooting appeared to be drug-related and that other charges are expected as the investigation continues.

Online court records don't show whether Parker has an attorney. He does not have a listed telephone number.
