BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- One of the people connected to the Brunswick Baby Murder
case may soon be released from jail.
Sabrina Elkins was granted a $25,000 bond on Wednesday.
Elkins told the court she was on the "straight and narrow," until she was arrested.
"Sir, I was going to school in May to be a doctor," she said.
The 19-year-old sister of accused baby killer DeMarquise Elkins is now charged with felony evidence tampering.

Police say she and her mother, Karimah, tried to hide the gun police believe DeMarquise used to kill 13-month-old Antonio Santiago last month.
Police say the mother and daughter threw the weapon in a salt water pond about three miles from the crime scene.
The woman accused of helping to cover up the crime is the same woman who told Action News cameras the day after the murder that her brother was innocent.
On March 22, Sabrina Elkins told us, "My brother is locked up for no reason, and it's hurting my heart because he's locked up for no reason, period!"
Police say DeMarquise Elkins, 17, and Dominique Lang, 15, tried to rob the baby's mother. And when they didn't get what they wanted, police say they shot her and the baby. The mother, Sherry West, survived.
Now, a total of four Elkins family members are named in the indictment. DeMarquise, his mom, his sister, and his aunt, Katrina, who police say lied to them by providing DeMarquise with an alibi.
So far, Sabrina is the only one who's been granted bond.
Conditions of her release include 24/7 GPS monitoring. She will be on house arrest. And she cannot have any contact with any witnesses or co-defendants.
DeMarquise Elkins was denied bond last week due to possible gang ties. Dominique Lang's attorney told us she would not seek bond for her client, that he was safer in jail. She has requested the two teenagers be tried separately.
In another new development, the state filed an order requesting the attorneys working on this case to no longer speak to the media. The judge approved that request, saying media coverage could make it difficult for the defendants to get a fair trial.
Dominique Lang, Karimah Elkins, and Katrina Elkins are due in court again next week for arraignment hearings.
