MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — The prosecution has rested its case in the trial of a man accused of fatally shooting a baby in a stroller in coastal Georgia.

De’Marquise (deh-mahr-KEES’) Elkins is charged with murder in the March 21 killing of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago in Brunswick. His mother, Karimah Elkins, is on trial alongside him on charges of evidence tampering and lying to police.

Lawyers for De’Marquise and Karimah Elkins said earlier this week that they expect to take about two days to present their witnesses and evidence.

Prosecutors say that Antonio was killed in an attempted robbery and that evidence implicates De’Marquise Elkins. The baby’s mother was wounded in the shooting.

The trial is being held near Atlanta because of pretrial publicity.

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