De’Marquise Elkins Murdered 13 Month Old and Will Stand Trial (Update)

032813 Baby in Stroller 1

Antonio Santiago’s mother was walking him in his stroller five months ago in Brunswick, Georgia.  Two boys, 18-year-old De’Marquise Elkins, and 15-year-old Dominique Lang, walked up to Mrs. Santiago, and demanded money.  Elkins had a gun.  When she refused, Elkins shot and murdered the 13-month-old.  He will stand trial for murder.  Lang is being charged as an accomplice.

Lang is expected to be the key witness who watched as Elkins shot Antonio in the head on March 21st.

The case received so much publicity that the judge ordered the trial moved to an Atlanta suburb, 325 miles away from Brunswick.

Elkins’ attorney claims the child’s parents killed Antonio.

The trial begins on Monday.
