3 held in theft of car, killing of 6-year-old in Mississippi

Three young Mississippi males were arrested hours after a 6-year-old boy was found shot dead in his mother’s stolen car and the suspects will be charged with capital murder, authorities said. Madison County District Attorney Michael Guest announced at a news conference this week that authorities plan to charge them in the death of the child. Authorities found Kingston Frazier shot at least once in the back seat of his mother’s stolen car, which Jackson Police Cmdr. Tyree Jones said was abandoned in a muddy ditch about 15 miles north of the city. About nine hours later, after a child-abduction alert and widespread publicity, a man reported the missing Toyota Camry was beside a dead-end road in the northern suburb of Gluckstadt. The capital murder charge means prosecutors could seek the death penalty if the three are convicted, Guest said.
