PEORIA (AP) – Jurors in Peoria have convicted a Chicago man of killing four people when he set a house on fire in 2010.

It took the Peoria County jury about 90 minutes to convict Aunterrio Barney, 37, on Monday of first-degree murder and arson. The fire killed Youlandice Simmons, 24, Brianna Simmons, 22, and Darresse Roddy, 19. Youlandice Simmons’ 2-year-old son, Darryl Miller Jr., died the next day at a Springfield hospital.

Barney faces a mandatory life prison term when sentenced on Sept. 4.
