Three teenagers are facing serious charges in the death of a Mississippi child who was killed last week.
Byron McBride, 19, Dwan Diondro Wakefield, 17, and D’Allen Tyreek Washington, 17, are facing capital murder charges after stealing a car last Thursday in Jackson, Mississippi. Six-year-old Kingston Frazier was sleeping in the backseat of the car when the three teenage boys stole the car. The child was later found shot to death.
Kingston's mom, Ebony Archie, explained that she stopped at a Kroger at around one o’clock in the morning, and left her son sleeping in the vehicle. When she left the grocery store, she discovered her son and car were gone.
Surveillance video showed that the three teenagers pulled up just minutes after Archie entered the store, and one of the suspects drove off in Archie’s car and the other two left in their car. The stolen vehicle was later found with Kingston's body inside. The Madison County coroner said Frazier had been shot multiple times.
According to the Associated Press, Mississippi Bureau of Investigation special agent Rusty Clark alleges that McBride was the one who stole Archie’s car and was also the one who shot and killed the child. However, investigators are still looking for the murder weapon.
The three teens are currently in jail and are scheduled to see a judge on Monday.
