3 Mississippi Teens Face Capital Murder Charge In Death Of 6-Year-Old Kindergartener

A six-year-old Mississippi boy was brutally murdered in a car theft incident, which led to a statewide Amber Alert being issued. The three teens allegedly responsible for the crime are now facing capital murder charges.

According to Mississippi State Police, D’Allen Tyreek Washington, 17, Dwan Diondro Wakefield, 17, and Byron McBride, 19, allegedly stole the vehicle where little Kingston Frazier was sleeping after his mother, Ebony Archie, ran into a Jackson Kroger and left her car running around 1 a.m. early Thursday morning.

When Frazier’s mother came out of the store, her vehicle and child were gone.

The vehicle – Toyota Camry – was later recovered on a dead-end road in Gluckstadt, a town that’s about 15 miles north of Jackson.

Sometime during the theft, the boys allegedly found Frazier sleeping in the back and then shot. Earlier reports said he was shot just once in the head. However, the Madison County coroner confirmed the boy was shot several times, not just once.

District Attorney Michael Guest said officials feel the little boy was shot while in the backseat, but don’t know if he was awake or asleep when the shooting took place.

Video surveillance caught the suspects pulling up next to the vehicle Archie was driving and left Kingston to sleep. One of the suspects got out of the vehicle and into Archie’s. Both vehicles quickly drove off.

Guest said investigators were looking for the weapon that was used to kill Frazier but feels confident they do have the right killers in jail.

Rusty Clark, a special agent with the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, said Wakefield told investigators that it was McBride who drove off in Archie’s vehicle and killed her son.

Guest said pure evil might be the only reason for the motive to kill the 6-year-old. As of now, there’s no real motive for the senseless act of violence against the child.

If convicted of capital murder, McBride would be the only one that could be given the death penalty. In 2005, the U.S. Supreme Court got rid of the capital punishment sentence for crimes that occurred by someone under the age of 15.

All three teens will face a judge Monday.

David Archie, Ebony’s uncle, said his niece is distraught over her choice to leave her son in the running vehicle. She had picked up the boy from his grandmother’s after celebrating her birthday with some friends. She stopped at the store to pick up party supplies for Kingston who would be graduating kindergarten on Friday with his friends.
