Jury selection begins in Ga. baby killing trial

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — Jury selection began today in the trial of a Georgia teenager charged with fatally shooting a 13-month-old baby in the face during an attempted street robbery.

A judge moved the trial of 18-year-old De’Marquise Elkins to the suburbs north of Atlanta, more than 325 miles from the crime scene where young Antonio Santiago was slain in the port city of Brunswick.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys began questioning potential jurors today at the Cobb County courthouse. They are set to resume jury selection Tuesday morning.

The slaying of young Antonio made national headlines. Prosecutors say Elkins and a 15-year-old accomplice were trying to rob the child’s mother March 21 and that Elkins shot the toddler when she said she had no money.

If you don't like my posts....don't read them. Oblamo (as well as other race profiteers) injected himself into an OBVIOUS self-defense case but has nothing to say about the murder of an ACTUAL child.
