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.

    It’s too bad there are those who would chose to use this event to sell their racism. Ironically to denounce violence promoting hate and violence.

    We need to start weeding out the scum of this country. I don’t care if you’re African American, White,Native or what have you, this piece of dirt needs to have his entire blood line wiped off the face of the map. A piece of junk family with no respect,

    Where is the national outrage and news coverage when a black murders a totally defenseless white child?, he was totally innocent unlike Trayvon Martin who attacked someone simply watching him…….Where is whites equivalent of Jesse Jackson to stir up the hate against the opposing race? ……Whites are more civilized and allow Justice to work unlike blacks who call for injustice for someone found innocent of killing a black in self defense.

    Shoot him multiple times. First in each leg, then each arm and then in the head – (right between the eyes, just like he did to the baby) each bullet about 12 hours apart.

    Look at that piece of garbage! What kind of animal would shoot a baby!!! Where are all the trayvon supporters b!tching and crying now! Its disgraceful! Hope he gets punishment in the worst possible inhumane way once he gets on the inside! Death penalty not enough for this waste of life. Should be tortured, beaten and hung!

      What does this have to do with Trayvon? Apparently, you can’t see a thing beyond skin color.

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

    If they can’t even show circumstantial evidence of this, they shouldn’t even be allowed to utter anything remotely like it. I’m sorry, there is zealously defending your client, and then there’s this travesty. I can’t believe we have sunk so low as a country.
