UPDATE: The suspects accused in the death of 6-year-old Kingston Frazier appeared in court for a preliminary hearing.
The cases for Byron McBride, Dwan Wakefield, and D’Allen Washington have been bound over to the grand jury.
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Three Mississippi teenagers charged in connection with the shooting death of a 6-year-old boy are scheduled to appear in court Monday.
Madison County Justice Court Judge Bruce McKinley will consider evidence against 19-year-old Byron McBride and two 17-year-olds, Dwan Wakefield and D’Allen Washington.
The three are charged with murder in the May 18 death of Kingston Frazier. Investigators say his mother left Frazier sleeping in a running car when she went into a Jackson supermarket. The car, with Frazier shot dead in the back seat, was found abandoned hours later in nearby Gluckstadt.
McBride could face execution, while Wakefield and Washington could face life in prison without parole.
Court papers obtained by The Associated Press show Wakefield told investigators that McBride stole the car and shot Frazier.
