BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- Shortly after her little brother's arrest last Friday, Sabrina Elkins told Action News, "My brother is innocent."

Fast forward a week, and Sabrina joins her brother, DeMarquise Elkins, in the Glynn County Jail. She was arrested Thursday night on charges of evidence tampering. 

"We know who. We know when. We know where. And we know how the firearm was hidden transported and disposed of. She was part of that," said Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering.

It's the fourth arrest in the Elkins family since the murder of 13 month old Antonio Santiago. Demarquise's mom, Karimah, and aunt, Katrina, are also behind bars.  Police say Karimah and Sabrina helped dispose of the suspected murder weapon by throwing it in a salt water pond off Highway 17. And they say Katrina lied when she provided her nephew with this alibi.

"I am 100% positive that Demarquise Elkins was not at that crime scene. He was at my residence," Katrina Elkins told Action News last week.

Dominique Lang, 15, is also charged with the baby's murder. The District Attorney's Office says the teenagers will not face the death penalty because of their ages.

Meanwhile, Chief Doering says a bullet found in the baby's body is now with the suspected murder weapon at a GBI crime lab.

Justice 4 Baby Antonio! This is a HATE CRIME perpetrated by a black thug against a WHITE HISPANIC simply because he was WEARING A ONESIE! Baby Antonmio was on the baby monitor with his girlfriend at the time of the shooting and she says the black thug said 'eat lead white hispanic baby - I'm a racist! How many WHITE HISPANIC BABIES have to die at the hands of black thugs before something is done? Anyone who would go out and adopt or create a black thug after this shooting really is a heartless turd who rapes transgender teens.

I am speechless and appalled by he actions of these so called children and the Elkins family I this sad tragic killing of this poor little baby. I am sorry it may sound cruel , but I feel as many other people that live close to this community. I feel that these o called children and everyone else involved in covering up this horrific crime should be punished to the fullest extent of the law, since we can not use biblical punishment ( because it is considered cruel and unusual punishment).. May this little angel rest in peace and his murders rot in hell
