Police arrest 2 Ga. teens, ages 17 and 14, in slaying of baby in stroller, wounding of mother

The mother of a 13-month-old baby who was shot in the face during an attempted robbery in Georgia is going through a second tragic loss of a child.

Sherry West was walking with her son in a stroller through her historic neighborhood in Brunswick Thursday when she was accosted by two teens. She was shot in the leg and a bullet grazed her ear before her son was shot.

West says her 18-year-old son was killed in a stabbing in New Jersey in 2008.

In the Georgia case, 17-year-old De'Marquis Elkins is charged as an adult with first-degree murder, along with a 14-year-old who was not identified because he is a juvenile.
