(CNN) — A Glynn County, Georgia, grand jury indicted two teenage defendants for murder in the death of a 13-month-old boy, the district attorney announced Wednesday.

Because the defendants were younger than 18 when the killing took place, they cannot face the death penalty if convicted.

De’Marquise Elkins, 17, and a 15-year-old were charged with murder last week and made their first court appearance Monday. The younger suspect is not being identified because of his age.

Neither teen entered a plea during Monday’s court hearing.
