Judge sets Dwan Wakefield’s bond at $275K

Metro

MADISON COUNTY, Miss. (WJTV) — One of the suspects accused in the Kingston Frazier case appeared in court Monday afternoon for a bond hearing.

A judge set Dwan Wakefield’s bond at $275,000. Wakefield is ordered to wear a tracking device.

In May, 6-year-old Kingston was in the backseat of his mother’s car when the vehicle was stolen from the Parking lot of the Kroger on I-55 in Jackson. He was found dead hours later in Madison County.

In November of 2017, authorities said Wakefield was initially released on bond because he was under the age of 18 at the time of the crime, and he had never been indicted for another crime. The jurisdiction of the case was with the Youth Court in Madison County.

Since then, District Attorney Michael Guest said they were able to certify Wakefield as an adult. He was rearrested earlier this month. His attorney told WJTV that his client turned himself in.

During Monday’s hearing, D.A. Guest said Wakefield left the country and went to Mexico while he was out on bond. The judge ordered that Wakefield must stay in the state. 

Wakefield is charged with accessory after the fact to murder, accessory after the fact to kidnapping and accessory after the fact to motor vehicle theft.

Two others D’Allen Washington and Bryon McBride were arrested in connection with this case.
