BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - A teenager convicted of fatally shooting a baby in the face while trying to rob the child's mother in coastal Georgia has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.
A judge sentenced 18-year-old De'Marquise Elkins on Thursday, less than two weeks after a jury found him guilty of murder in the death of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago.
The boy was in his stroller and out for a walk with his mother when he was shot between the eyes March 21. The boy's mother and a younger teenager charged as an accomplice testified Elkins killed the child after his mother refused to give up her purse.
The death penalty wasn't an option for Elkins because he was 17 at the time of the killing.
