Georgia Woman Says She's Certain Suspect Shot Her Baby In Stroller
BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - The mother of a baby boy shot dead in his stroller says police have their man.
Sherry West took one look at a teenage suspect's jailhouse mugshot today and said he was definitely the killer. Yet an aunt of the teen said he was eating breakfast with her when the slaying took place.
Despite the conflicting stories, police in Brunswick, Ga., have charged 17-year-old De'Marquise Elkins with murder, along with a 14-year-old suspect whose name has been withheld because he's a juvenile.
Brunswick police spokesman Todd Rhodes says even though Elkins' aunt provided an alibi, authorities have good reason to bring the charges. Rhodes says "the evidence we're looking at says something else."
Also, police have released 911 recordings from neighbors who sobbed and pleaded for help right after 13-month-old Antonio Santiago was shot in the head a few blocks from his mother's apartment.
Two teddy bears, a vase of flowers and a decorative cross has been left against a wooden fence near the shooting scene.
