MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - An investigator has testified that a Brunswick teenager accused of the shooting death of a baby challenged officers about a lack of evidence.
Detective Roderic Nohilly testified Friday in Marietta about the arrest of 18-year-old De'Marquise "Marky" Elkins. Nohilly said that as Elkins was being handcuff, he told officers that they didn't have anything on him, including no gun and no fingerprints. Nohilly said then Elkins saw another detective smile, and the teen said, "Oh, got the gun?"
Investigators had found a .22-caliber revolver in a pond. The Savannah Morning News (http://bit.ly/1daswrF ) reports Superior Court Judge Stephen Kelley allowed the testimony over defense objections.
Elkins is charged with murder in the shooting of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago during a botched robbery of the child's mother on March 21 in Brunswick.
