BRUNSWICK, GA -- The mother and the aunt of one of the teenage suspects accused of killing a Brunswick baby are now also in trouble with the law.
Action News called the Glynn County Jail and found that both Karimah Elkins, 36, and her 33-year-old sister, Katrina Elkins, were both arrested this morning on a felony charge of lying to police.
Karimah Elkins' son, 17-year-old De'Marquise Elkins, is also in jail facing first degree murder charges as an adult. He's accused of shooting Antonio Santiago, a 13-month-old baby from Brunswick in the face last Thursday. Another young suspect, 15-year-old Dominique Lang, is also charged with the baby's murder.
The jail said the pair was booked on the felony warrant around 6:40 a.m. A bond of $1,104 was predetermined with the charges.
Both women posted bail, but only Karimah was released. Katrina Elkins is now being held on an outstanding probation warrant from Henry County, Georgia. We're told they are in the process of extraditing her back to Henry County to face charges there.
The warrant was issued by the Glynn County Police Department. The full charge is listed as giving false statements or writings, concealed facts or fraudulent documents in a government matter.
Action News has calls out to Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering to learn the nature of the charges.
