Grand jury to hear evidence in Kingston Frazier murder

JACKSON, Miss. — The cases against three young men charged in connection to the shooting death of 6-year-old Kingston Frazier  were handed over to a Grand jury.

Madison County Justice Court Judge Bruce McKinley heard the evidence against Byron McBride, Dwan Wakefield and D’Allen Washington during a preliminary hearing on Monday.

The judge ruled there was enough evidence for it to be bound over to the Grand jury, WJTV reported.

The three were charged with murder after Kingston was discovered dead on May 18.

Investigators said 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.
