One charged in Kingston Frazier case released from prison on parole
JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - D’Allen Washington, one of three men in prison for the kidnapping and death of 6-year-old Kingston Frazier, is out of prison on parole.
Washington pleaded guilty to one court of accessory after the fact of kidnapping in 2018. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison with 5 years suspended.
Frazier was killed on May 18, 2017, after the car he was asleep in was stolen from the parking lot of the Kroger on I-55 at 1:00 in the morning.
An Amber Alert was issued, and multiple law-enforcement agencies joined the search.
Hours later, the stolen car was found abandoned behind a building near the Gluckstadt exit off I-55 in Madison County.
The six-year-old was still in the back seat — where he’d been shot to death.
Byron McBride and Dwan Wakefield both remain in prison, charged with murdering Frazier.
Washington’s attorney Warren L. Martin Jr. released this statement after his client’s release.
The Mississippi State Parole Board provided a statement explaining Washington’s was parole conditions.
Washington, 22, is required to be on electronic monitoring for a year. His conditions also include monthly reporting, random drug testing, a midnight curfew, and non-affiliation with convicted felons. He cannot possess a gun, use alcoholic beverages, go to places with bad reputations, change his residency without notifying his supervising agent or leave the state without permission. He must pay all court costs and supervision fees. His supervision ends Dec. 21, 2028, followed by five years of probation.
“Parole is a privilege that the Mississippi State Parole Board does not give lightly,” Board Chairman Jeffery Belk said. “Should he violate the conditions of his parole, he will be returned to prison.”
Frazier’s grandmother, Lynn Winston, says how involved Washington was should not matter.
“This was a six-year-old child that could do nothing to fend for himself,” she said. “And here you are adults, young adults, that could have perhaps prevented this... My grandson died horrifically and [Washington] only got fifteen years and he did not do the full fifteen. He didn’t even do five years.”
