Dwan Wakefield convicted in Kingston Frazier murder case

The third defendant in the 2017 murder of 6-year-old Kingston Frazier has been convicted on multiple charges. 

A jury has found Dwan Wakefield guilty on charges of accessory after the fact to murder, kidnapping and vehicle theft. Frazier was in the backseat of his mother’s car when it was stolen from a Kroger parking lot in Jackson in the early morning hours of May 18, 2017. The car was found in Gluckstadt hours later with Kingston’s dead body in the backseat.

Later that day, Byron McBride, Wakefield and D’Allen Washington were arrested in connection with Frazier’s murder. It was later determined that the three suspects were in the parking lot for a  drug deal when they decided to steal the car. As the investigation continued, authorities determined that McBride was the one who pulled the trigger. 

McBride pled guilty to Frazier’s murder in late August and will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Washington previously pled guilty to accessory after the fact to kidnapping and will spend 15 years in prison.
