BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) -- A Georgia judge says he wants a trial before the year ends for a teenager charged with fatally shooting a baby in the face.

Glynn County Superior Court Judge Stephen Kelley told attorneys in the case Friday he expects a 2013 trial for 17-year-old De'Marquise Elkins. The suspect is charged with malice murder in the slaying of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago two weeks ago in the coastal city of Brunswick. Police say the child was shot as Elkins and a younger teenager tried to rob the boy's mother.

The judge denied Elkins' request for bond Friday, saying he's concerned the suspect might flee.

Elkins' great grandfather, McKinley Elkins, tried to assure the judge that if the teenager was released on bond he would be "a gentleman from this day forward."
