JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Three Mississippi men have been arrested in connection with the killing of a 6-year-old boy found shot in his mother's stolen car.
Madison County District Attorney Michael Guest said authorities will charge Byron McBride, D'Allen Washington and Dwan Wakefield with capital murder in the death of Kingston Frazier.
Jackson Police Commander Tyree Jones said Kingston was shot at least once after the car was stolen early Thursday morning from a grocery store parking lot in Jackson.
Kingston was inside a silver 2000 Toyota Camry when the car was stolen outside a Kroger on Interstate 55 in Jackson about 2 a.m. Thursday.
Hinds County sheriff's officials said the child's mother had left the car running with Kingston inside.
Police issued a child-abduction alert and sought help from the public to find the car and the child.
The district attorney said the three men will make their first appearance in court Monday. A lawyer for one of the men didn't immediately respond to requests for comment. Guest said the other two do not yet have lawyers
