Grand jury indicts teens in baby's death

A Glynn County, Georgia, grand jury indicted two teenage defendants for murder in the shooting death last week of a 13-month-old boy, the district attorney announced Wednesday.

Because the defendants were younger than 18 when the killing took place, they cannot face the death penalty if convicted.

De'Marquise Elkins, 17, and a 15-year-old were charged with murder last week and made their first court appearance Monday. The younger suspect is not being identified because of his age.

Neither teen entered a plea during Monday's court hearing.

      Yes, you might, but until the evidence that they ARE on SSRI's is in, I will call them the obvious: idiots.

    Less than 15% of the population responsible for over half of all crimes committed. Go figure. Almost 50 years since civil rights act and these folks still can't assimilate – never will.

    This kind of mindless violence has to stop! What's wrong w/people! Makes the whole gun violence debate look foolish! I mean, we Have To find a way to stop this kind of acts, or at least diminish it, make it less of an "every week" thing! It's unconscionable that we should "get use" to these kind of acts! We need a serious convo about this, Americans!!

    Senseless acts done by "troubled" kids! Saw them on TV this morning and they look like "wannabe" hoods! But, then again, where are the parents? I agree with the mother in her "eye for an eye" statement!

    This should not be a race issue! Ive seen bad "white" boys too! And it doesnt matter, a child is dead, because of the senseless acts of two other children!
