    BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - A Georgia teen convicted of fatally shooting a baby in a stroller was sentenced Thursday to spend the rest of his life in prison with no chance of parole after the grieving mother asked a judge to punish the gunman for taking "the love of my life." De'Marquise Elkins, 18, stood silent and showed no emotion as he was sentenced in a courtroom less than two weeks after a jury found him guilty of murder in the slaying of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago during a robbery attempt.

    The adult daughter of a woman whose baby was fatally shot in his stroller testified Wednesday that her mother's account of what happened that day didn't add up. A defense lawyer called Ashley Glassey to testify in the murder trial of his client, De'Marquise Elkins, who is charged in the March 21 killing of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago in coastal Georgia. Glassey's mother, Sherry West, has said she was walking home from the Brunswick post office with Antonio in a stroller when Elkins, 18, and another teen approached her and demanded money. After she told them she didn't have any, Elkins...

    Took the jury just under two hours to reach a guilty verdict. Most of that time was probably spent electing a foreman and deciding what to have for lunch.

    MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — A defense attorney for a man accused of fatally shooting a baby in a stroller said the investigation was flawed and police ignored other leads and suspects, while the prosecution said witnesses may have had shifting stories but video and other evidence doesn't lie. The closing arguments Friday in the trial of De'Marquise Elkins gave dramatically different portrayals of the investigation and presented opposing theories of what happened. Elkins, 18, is charged with murder and other crimes in the March 21 killing of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago in Brunswick, along Georgia's coast. He's also accused of shooting...

    Earlier, the man who tipped Brunswick police to 18-year-old De’Marquise “Marky” Elkins and co-defendant Dominique Lang, 15, as suspects, testified that his conscience led him to act, not the reward. “I didn’t do this for the reward money. Can I say this? Whoever had the guns to shoot a baby... I’m doing this for my conscience,” Argie Brooks said. ...A psychology professor from Georgia State University testified about how witnesses are often mistaken while identifying attackers because of stress and police suggestions. “When you go to retrieve that memory, it’s been updated and influenced by all these things,” said Dr....

    MARIETTA, Ga. – An 18-year-old man accused of fatally shooting a baby in a stroller during a robbery attempt in coastal Georgia twice counted down from five and threatened the baby before the deadly shot, his teenage co-defendant testified Thursday. Dominique Lang took the stand at the murder trial of De'Marquise Elkins, who is accused of shooting 13-month-old Antonio Santiago on March 21. Police say the 15-year-old Lang was an accomplice, and he is also charged with murder and will be tried at a later date.

    The teen accused of shooting a toddler between the eyes during a robbery attempt counted down from five before firing, his alleged accomplice testified today after pointing him out as the shooter. Dominique Lang testified that he ran into De'Marquise Elkins on the morning of the March 21 slaying. A short while later as the two walked together, they saw Sherry West with a stroller. Lang says Elkins walked to West and demanded her purse before pulling out a gun. When West refused to hand the purse over, he hit her in the face with it and threatened her baby....

Here’s a little dose of reality for them, it’s the first of two emails I got about Antonio West this morning…. His Story: You won’t recognize me.

    You won't recognize me. My name was Antonio West and I was the 13-month old child who was shot at point blank range by two teens who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot. A Grand Jury of my mommy's peers from Brunswick GA determined the teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty...too bad I was given a death sentence for being innocent and defenseless. My family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder was not ruled a Hate Crime. Nor did President Obama take so much...

    BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- The defense for the teen accused of killing a Brunswick baby wants evidence released that may connect another local woman to the crime. Action News uncovered startling new details in the death of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago. According to police, 17-year-old De'Marquis Elkins murdered the Brunswick baby nearly two weeks ago. Now his attorney, Kevin Gough, claims someone else may have plotted to have the baby killed and used Elkins as the trigger man. Action News isn't releasing the woman's name because she hasn't been charged with a crime. "I know she hasn't been involved in anything. I...

    Shortly after her little brother's arrest last Friday, Sabrina Elkins told Action News, "My brother is innocent." Fast forward a week, and Sabrina joins her brother, DeMarquise Elkins, in the Glynn County Jail. She was arrested Thursday night on charges of evidence tampering. "We know who. We know when. We know where. And we know how the firearm was hidden transported and disposed of. She was part of that," said Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering. It's the fourth arrest in the Elkins family since the murder of 13 month old Antonio Santiago. Demarquise's mom, Karimah, and aunt, Katrina, are...

    It’s broad daylight on a Saturday afternoon in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, just this past December. Bill Bailey, father of a two-year-old daughter with his fiancé, is walking back home after going to a neighborhood convenience store and buying cigarettes. Three young boys, two of them aged 14 and the third aged 13, are following Bailey and harassing him, trying to get him to give them cigarettes. Bailey refuses. The boys keep up their aggressive following, demanding cigarettes. Bailey arrives at his home, and the boys won’t stop harassing him. The argument escalates. Bailey’s fiancé, 22-year-old Kayla Peterson, hears the commotion...

    The shootings of a Brunswick mother and her 1-year-old son last week in which the boy was killed were random, Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering said at a news conference Wednesday. De'Marquise Elkins, 17, and Dominique Lang, 15, were each indicted Wednesday on a count of first-degree murder in the killing of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago. Doering said it had been a judgment call about releasing the information that the location and victims of the shootings were random, but he said investigators are now comfortable in revealing that.

And my baby is innocent. He could’ve been dead too,” said Brenda Moses, Lane’s mother. Outside court Monday, Moses and Lane’s grandmother, Verdell Hunter, said Lane doesn’t know Elkins. Hunter said her family doesn’t know exactly what happened, but her grandson lives in the area and told her he was simply walking by when he saw Elkins. “He’s a victim,” Hunter said. “He said that...
