Suspects in baby's murder appearing in court

Posted: Updated:
BRUNSWICK, Ga. -

One suspect in the shooting death of a baby who was killed in his stroller has made his first court appearance, and a second suspect faces a court hearing later.

 

A 14-year-old suspect who faces a murder charge appeared in court Monday morning.

 

The Florida Times-Union reports that Glynn County Magistrate Tim Barton told the boy he can't set a bond since only Superior Court judges can do so in murder cases.

 

WJXT-TV reports that a second suspect, 17-year-old De'Marquise Elkins, is scheduled to be in court at 2 p.m. Monday. He also faces a murder charge in the death of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago in Brunswick. Elkins' family says he did not shoot the baby.

 

The baby's mother, Sherry West, said she was walking home Thursday morning when two boys confronted her.
