The sister of De’Marquise Elkins, who is serving 105 years in prison for killing a 13-month-old boy and other charges, pleaded guilty Wednesday to helping their mother throw the murder weapon in a pond.
Sabrina Elkins, 20, pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence before Superior Court Judge Stephen Kelley.
Kelley sentenced her mother, Karimah Elkins to the maximum 10 years in prison in early March after she pleaded guilty to the same charge. Kelley told Sabrina Elkins she could serve one to 10 years in prison but agreed to defense lawyer Frank Aspinwall’s request that a pre-sentencing investigation be conducted before Kelley decides on a sentence.
