Posted on 08/30/2013 2:14:41 PM PDT by Hojczyk
An 18-year-old man was convicted of murder in the shooting of a baby who was riding in a stroller alongside his mom in a town in coastal Georgia.
Jurors deliberated about two hours before finding De'Marquise Elkins guilty of 11 counts, including two counts of felony murder and one count of malice murder in the March 21 killing of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago in Brunswick. The man's mother, Karimah Elkins, was on trial alongside him and was found guilty of tampering with evidence but acquitted of lying to police.
De'Marquise Elkins faces life in prison. At the time of the shooting he was 17, too young to face the death penalty under Georgia law.
Sherry West testified that she was walking home from the post office with her son the morning of the killing. A gunman demanding her purse, shot her in the leg and shot her baby in the face after she told him she had no money, she said.
Prosecutors, who declined comment after the verdict, said during trial that De'Marquise Elkins and an accomplice, 15-year-old Dominique Lang, are the ones who stopped West. Prosecutors say the older teen pointed a small .22-caliber revolver at West and demanded money. When West refused several times to turn over the money, Elkins fired a warning shot, shot the woman in the leg and the baby between the eyes, prosecutors said.

Another “Obama” murdering thug son gets his just due!!! Truly an animal!!! What form of low life shoots an innocent infant in the face for a pocketbook???
Aw, heck. You mean it wasn’t society’s fault?
We need to start pushing state and federal legislators to lower the eligibility age for the death sentence. The death sentence should be mandatory in all states, along with a limit (say 2 years) for the time it takes to carry out the sentence. Put these animals in the ground sooner where they belong.
If only the baby had a hoddie, Skittles and an Arizona Tea, this might have been a national story.
Obama’s son found guilty of murder? Amazing.
Predictable (late) Friday afternoon (holiday weekend) news...
I swear, the media, including leftist Hollywood, and our lame leadership should bear responsibility for all racism in the USA.
Read the bible. No way the ancient Hebrews would have let this subhuman POS continue wasting oxygen.
They had to take the time to elect a foreman also.

Why do all these scumbags have these horrible names?
Not really. Those guys weren't governed by laws. This one here did a countdown to murder. There may be more grisly murders and murderers, but this one is the savage.
Very small. They didn't have guns back then so that pussies like this one could so easily kill others.
Back then, he would have used a stick or rock. There have always been bullies.
All the current 'racism' stems from one point in time. It involved one of the (now) wealthiest black women in the United States, whose entire fortune was built from the same starting point.
That, my FRiends, is the TV Miniseries - ROOTS.
A complete lie, from beginning to end, taken(plagiarized) from a book on the life of the JEWS under NAZI OCCUPATION.
No one complained about the plagiarism because the week long debacle made $$$BILLIONS.
That was the start of LIBERAL WHITE GUILT, and of the NEW BLACK ROYALTY.
You know his attorney must have been a moron to propose this line of defense without any real empirical evidence...
How possible is it for a mother of a child to shot their own child in the face...?...in broad daylight for insurance money?
I am sure the jury had women on it...that probably went over well with them ? / S
Sure it's possible but highly improbable...
Versus a teen thug shooting a child in the face...highly likely...
Glad to see his worthless mother got convicted as well...
