The mother and aunt of a teen arrested in connection with the shooting death of an infant have been charged with lying to police.

Police said De'Marquise Elkins and a 15 year old, both of Brunswick, shot a 13-month-old in a botched robbery attempt. 

Elkins' mother Karimah Elkins, 36, and aunt Katrina Elkins, 33, are now both charged with lying to police. 

Karimah Elkins is charged with making false statements or writings and concealing facts or fraudulent documents in matters of government. She posted a $1104 bond.

De'Marquise Elkins and Dominique Lang, 15, remain in jail. The baby's mother, Sherry West, identified De'Marquise Elkins in a police photo lineup as her son's killer.

De'Marquise Elkins' attorney denies that he had any gang affiliation, and says he's not aware of any prior criminal history. His next court date is April 5.

A preliminary hearing is still being planned for Lang.
