19-Year-Old Byron McBride, along with D’Allen Washington and Dwan Wakefield, who are both 17, were charged with capital murder in connection with a 6-year-old’s death, the Associated Press reported.

Police found Kingston Frazier with multiple gunshot wounds in the back of his mother’s stolen car that was abandoned in Gluckstadt, 15 miles north of Jackson, the state capital.

Authorities say that Frazier went missing around 1 a.m. on Thursday after a man drove a Toyota Camry out of a supermarket parking lot in Jackson.

Nine hours later, a man reported the missing vehicle found, on a dead-end road in Gluckstadt.

The child’s Mother, Ebony Archie, collapsed and broke down crying when she heard the news that her son had been killed at the district attorney’s office in Jackson.

Archie’s family members said Ebony had just picked up Frazier from his grandmother’s house and decided to go the store to pick up party supplies for Frazier’s kindergarten graduation when the men broke into her car and drove away.

“She feels guilty for the fact that she decided to go inside the store and leave the car running when she went inside the store,” David Archie, Ebony Archie’s uncle, told WLBT.

Wakefield told investigators that McBride was the only person out of the three who was responsible for actually killing Frazier and stealing the vehicle.

Wakefield, McBride, and Washington all face charges of capital murder and all three will be tried as adults. However, only McBride could face the death penalty because of a Supreme Court ruling that outlawed the death penalty for anyone younger than the age of 18.

The 3 are being held without bail in Madison County and are expected to appear in court today.
