Witnesses give grisly details of toddler’s slaying in first day of trial

Special to SEGAZINE

Lawyers made opening statements Tuesday afternoon in the trial of a man accused of shooting a baby to death in his stroller with attorneys predicting the case would last all week and possibly part of next week.

An indictment accuses De’Marquiese Elkins, 18, of shooting 13-month-old Antonio Angel Santiago to death and wounding his mother, Sherry West, on Brunswick street in a failed armed robbery attempt.

Several of the women jurors were visibly shaken when prosecutors began showing crime scene and autopsy photos of Antonio bundled in a jacket, mittens and knit hat lying lifeless on a stretcher with a bullet wound between his eyebrows.
