MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — Testimony has resumed in the trial of a man accused of fatally shooting a baby as he sat in his stroller.

DeMarquise (deh-mahr-KEES’) Elkins is charged with murder in the March 21 killing of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago in Brunswick.

Prosecutors have said Antonio was killed in a botched robbery and that ballistics and other evidence implicate Elkins. The baby’s mother, Sherry West, was also wounded in the shooting.

The trial began a week ago and Elkins’ alleged 15-year-old accomplice testified saying that Elkins was the shooter.

The trial is being held in Marietta because of the publicity the case garnered in the spring.

If convicted, 18-year-old Elkins faces up to life in prison.
