Mother And Aunt Of Teen Murder Suspect Arrested In Brunswick Georgia

SAVANNAH, Ga. —Police investigating the fatal shooting of a baby in coastal Georgia have arrested the mother and aunt of a teenage suspect on charges that they lied to authorities.

Glynn County jail records show 36-year-old Karimah Elkins and 33-year-old Katrina Elkins were booked Tuesday on charges of making false statements to police.

Karimah Elkins is the mother of 17-year-old De’Marquise Elkins, who is charged with murder in the Thursday killing of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago in Brunswick.

Katrina Elkins is the suspect’s aunt. She told The Associated Press and other media on Saturday that her nephew couldn’t have killed the child because he was at her house having breakfast.

The baby’s mother, Sherry West, identified De’Marquise Elkins in a police photo lineup as her son’s killer. Fifteen-year-old Dominique Lang is also charged.
