Baby shooting: Suspect's mom, aunt arrested

The mother and the aunt of one of the two teenage boys accused of fatally shooting a 13-month-old baby in Brunswick, Georgia, have been arrested, according to documents in the case.

Seventeen-year-old murder suspect De'Marquise Elkins' mother, Karimah Aisha Elkins, 36, and his aunt, Katrina Latrelle Elkins, 33, are accused of "false statements or writings," among other charges, the complaint said.

Also Tuesday, police investigating the case found a weapon and are trying to determine if it is connected to the shooting, a Brunswick police spokesman said.

    On Elkins FaceBook *About* he brags about turning his neighborhood into a murder scene. How is that innocent?

    A crime as heinous as it is, hard to comprehend.
    Is there an extent of punishment for this?

    When adults come into conflict with each other it may be understood but when children are involved I cannot begin to fathom a reason.

    A lot of states have the death penalty but it takes about 15 plus years to carry it out. States with the death penalty need 2 carry it out faster & actually carry it out, like Florida & Texas! I live in TX & an imate here spends about 8 yrs on death row. Does Georgia have the death penalty? Kuz those 2 boys sure as hell deserve it!

    the baby had a perfectly good 9 millimeter. It wasn't his fault that he missed.
