 Three Mississippi teenagers charged in the shooting death of a 6-year-old boy killed last week after his mother’s car was stolen from a grocery store parking lot were denied bail on Monday.
Dwan Wakefield, 17, D’Allen Washington, 17, and Byron McBride, 19, have been charged with capital murder in the death of Kingston Frazier, who was found fatally shot in the head on Thursday in his mother’s car.
The three suspects did not enter pleas during a court appearance on Monday at the Madison County Justice Court in Canton, Mississippi. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for late June.
Last week, Mississippi Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Rusty Clark said in the affidavit that Dwan Wakefield of Ridgeland told him and another investigator that his pal Byron McBride of Pickens was at fault: “During this interview, Wakefield implicated Byron McBride as the person who actually stole the vehicle and shot and killed Frazier,” Clark’s statement said.
Though all three men are charged with capital murder, only the shooter, 19-year-old Bryon McBride could face the death penalty. The U.S. Supreme Court outlawed the death penalty for crimes committed by people younger than 18 in 2005.
District Attorney Michael Guest told reporters, Monday that he was weighing the death penalty for McBride: “I think there is a great desire to see justice is served in this case,” Guest said outside of the courthouse.
“If it appears that justice will be observed by seeking the death penalty, then our office will definitely go forward on that.”
