BRUNSWICK, Ga. –
Detectives testified at a pretrial hearing Friday that 15-year-old Dominque Lang confessed to being present when 13-month-old Antonio Santiago was shot and killed in March, but says he was not the shooter.
Detectives said Lang told them a “kid named Marquise” was there, and he gave the a re-enactment consistent with Sherry West’s, the baby’s mother, who was pushing him in a stroller when he was killed.
De’Marquise Elkins, 17, and Lang are both charged with murder in the killing. The trial for Elkins, his mother and sister is set to begin Aug. 19 in Cobb County. A separate trial will be held for Lang, but there’s no word on when that will be.
Detectives testified that Lang’s aunt gave the teens a ride shortly after the killing and said she knew Lang’s friend to be an Elkins boy, the son of Karimah Elkins, who’s also charged in the case. She said he was ducking and acting odd while in her car.
