MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) -- The mother of a baby who was fatally shot in his stroller in coastal Georgia testified at a man's murder trial that she threw her arms across her baby, trying to save him.

Sherry West told jurors Tuesday that two teenagers approached her as she walked home from the Brunswick post office March 21. She said the older one demanded money, tried to take her purse and threatened to kill her baby. She said the teen fired a warning shot, shot her in the leg and then shot the baby.

Asked if the shooter was in the courtroom, West said he was. She pointed at De'Marquise (deh-mahr-KEES') Elkins, who sat at the defense table and showed no emotion.

Elkins is charged with murder in the killing of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago.
