Two teens arrested in slaying of Georgia infant in stroller

On Friday Georgia police charged two teens with murder a day after a 13-month-old boy was shot dead in his stroller and his mother wounded during a holdup. De’Marquise Kareem Elkins, 17, was charged as an adult with first-degree murder. A 14-year-old companion was also charged with murder but was not identified because he is a juvenile. Sherry West said she and her son, Antonio, Santiago, were on a walk about 9 a.m. Thursday when they were approached by two young men, one of which revealed a handgun and demanded money. When West told them she didn’t have any money, the gunman asked if she wanted him to kill her baby. West said that the gunman fired a shot into the ground, then shot her in the left ear and upper leg. Then he walked around the stroller and shot her child in the face, killing him instantly.
