Two Brunswick teens indicted on murder charges in baby's shooting death

A Glynn County grand jury has indicted De’Marquise Kareem Elkins, 17, and Dominique Demetrius Lang, 14, on murder and other charges in the March 21 death of a 13-month old boy.

It also indicted Elkins’ mother and sister with tampering with evidence in throwing the pistol that was used to shoot the child and his mother in a pond.

Elkins is also accused of shooting a man in a March 11 robbery attempt, and his mother and another aunt are charged with making false statements to police.

The indictment Wednesday said a .22 caliber revolver was used to shoot toddler Antonio Angel Santiago, his mother Sherry West, who was wounded in the right thigh, and the March 11 victim.

Elkins alone is charged with malice murder but both he and Lang are charged with two counts of felony murder in that the baby was killed during the commission of aggravated assault and attempted robbery, the indictment says.

The indictment charges each of them with three counts of aggravated assault in shooting West and her baby and in striking West on the head with the weapon.

They are each charged with the attempted robbery of West and first degree cruelty to children in causing the baby to suffer “cruel and excessive pain” by shooting him in the face.

Elkins’ mother, Karimah Elkins, and aunt, Kartina Elkins, were charged with making false statements to police. The indictment says that while speaking to police on March 22, Katrina Elkins provided a false alibi for Elkins by reporting he was at her residence during the shooting.

On the same day, the indictment says, Karimah Elkins also provided a false alibi for her son by telling police he was with her during shooting.

Did the alibis conflict?

“He didn’t shoot nobody he was with me at my house!” the aunt.

“He couldn’t have shot anyone, he was with me at my house!” the mom.

Different house?

Disgusting. I’m still waiting for the piece of garbage living in our White House to call the mother of this slaughtered baby to console her and maybe pay all funeral expenses incurred (out of his own pocket) because of his two sons.

What a filthy racist son-of-a-bitch this Kenyan-born illegal alien is.

People like to say in jest that "if Obama had sons" and similar, but these really are Obama's sons. The incredibly toxic race baiting, class warfare, and incitement to violence messages that have emanated from the White House during this administration caused this, just as every Nazi could have been considered a child of Hitler. He made them.

Elkins was going for his GED and Lang was in a midnight basketball program.

I hope they all go to prison for a long time. It’s probably the best we can hope for.

Forensics should test fire this gun in the backs of these two punks heads and then test to see if the bullets match those in the child.

What kind of monster can fire a bullet into the face of a 13 month old baby.? Not one who I want living on this planet.

No 1st degree murder charge? Or would that just get plea-bargained away? Go for lesser charges and convictions? Anyone know?

I would assume it would be 2nd degree. They didn’t plan on that child previous to leaving. A FReeper lawyer will hopefully jump in.

Premeditated intent for 1st degree? I guess the DA knows what s/he is doing, unlike the corrupt, criminal DA in the Zimmerman-Martin case.

. . . lawyer chiming in here . . .

There are no "degrees" of murder in GA.

"Malice murder" is a capital/death penalty offense if the DA elects to seek the DP.

"Felony murder" is murder committed in the course of another crime.

They have charged them with everything they can. You can't impose the death penalty on a minor.
