MARIETTA, Ga. -- The mother of a murdered Brunswick baby briefly returned to the witness stand Wednesday and did not face tough questions like she did the night before.
Sherry West testified for more than seven hours Tuesday. She relived the day her 13-month-old son, Antonio Santiago, was shot in his stroller.
She said she was walking home from the post office when two teenagers tried to rob her. When she told them she didn't have any money, she said one of the teens shot her in the leg and shot her baby between the eyes.
The accused gunman is on trial right now. DeMarquise Elkins, 18, faces life in prison if convicted.
His mother, Karimah Elkins, is also on trial. She's accused of hiding the suspected murder weapon.
West was the state's second to last witness. Prosecutors called a detective to the stand before resting their case. Elkins' defense team is preparing to call the first witnesses.
Court has been starting early and ending late, in an effort to end the trial before the holiday weekend.
