The accused Brunswick baby's defense team is working to clear De Marquise Elkins name and Wednesday they turned to the daughter of Sherry West to help them do it.
21-year-old Ashley Glassey testified her mother called her hours after baby Antonio was murdered to ask about how soon she could cash in on a life insurance policy.
"She asked me how long I thought it would take to get the life insurance policy, the check to come."
Glassey testified this conversation happened just hours about 13-month old baby Antonio Santiago was fatally shot. She says her mom's story kept changing so she talked to detectives and even answered questions from reporters. Glassey says her mom told her to keep her mouth closed.
"She was very mad at me. She told me I had no business talking to the news."
The defense is hoping the testimony casts doubt on West's character and helps their client, DeMarquise Elkins. Elkins is accused of fatally shooting the baby in a robbery attempt. A second teen, Dominique Lang, will be tried in a different trial.
The defense also says West suffers from mental disorders such as bipolar disorder and say it may have affected her memory the day of the shooting. West testified she was certain her son's killer is Antonio Santiago.
