A Brunswick teen accused of killing a 13-month-old hid a pistol that his mother later took to a pond where police found it, prosecution witnesses testified Monday.
That testimony came at the onset of the second week of the trial of De’Marquise Elkins, 18, and his mother Karimah Elkins. Because of pretrial news coverage in and around Brunswick, De’Marquise Elkins is being tried for murder, aggravated assault, attempted robbery and other charges in Marietta. His mother is on trial with him on charges of lying to police and disposing of the weapon.
Her daughter Sabrina Elkins is also charged with evidence tampering but will be tried separately.
After prosecutors showed the jury video of De’Marquise Elkins entering and leaving a neighbor’s apartment in the McIntyre Court housing project, they called upon two residents of the public housing complex to testify.
