BELLEVILLE, Illinois — An East St. Louis man is accused in the beating and strangling of a man during a suspected robbery.

Prosecutors in southwestern Illinois' St. Clair County charged Tracey Vickers on Thursday with two first-degree murder counts, one alleging that the killing took place during a holdup.

Authorities say 27-year-old Tobias Gross of O'Fallon was found unconscious and bleeding Monday night in East St. Louis. He later died at a Belleville hospital.

Online court records don't show whether Vickers has an attorney. He has no home telephone listing.

Vickers is jailed on $750,000 bond.
