(CNN) — Two teenage boys accused of shooting a baby in Brunswick, Georgia, made their first appearance in court on Monday, but they offered nothing in the way of explaining the strange and tragic case.
A 15-year-old, who is not being identified because of his age, and 17-year-old De’Marquise Elkins were charged with murder last week.
Wearing an orange jumpsuit, his hands and feet shackled, the 15-year-old listened as Glynn County Judge Timothy Barton read his Miranda rights. Previously, the boy’s age was reported as 14.
Authorities have not yet said whether the teen will be considered as a juvenile or adult, and the teen did not enter a plea.
Asked if he had any questions, the teen told the judge, “no sir.”
Earlier, his mother, Brenda Moses, said her son was “just a witness,” and that “he didn’t do anything wrong.”
“My feelings go out to the mother, and the baby and my baby,” Moses said. “They’ve handled this investigation wrong, and the truth is going to come out.”
