A search warrant filed Friday in Glynn County Magistrate Court says officers found two .22-caliber bullets in a pants pocket of 19-year-old De'Marquise Elkins when they arrested him March 22.

Elkins is charged with murder in the March 21 slaying of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago, who police say was shot in the face as Elkins an accomplice tried to rob the toddler's mother. Authorities also charged 15-year-old Dominique Lang in the slaying.

Police say they later recovered a .22-caliber pistol that Elkins' mother and sister dumped in a saltwater pond.

Both suspects have pleaded not guilty.
