Teen pleads guilty in death of boy found in stolen car

CANTON, Miss. (AP) - A Mississippi teen is pleading guilty to reduced charges in the killing of a 6-year-old boy who authorities say was inside a car stolen from a supermarket parking lot.

D'Allen Washington, 18, pleaded guilty Monday to accessory after the fact to the kidnapping of Kingston Frazier, and to an unrelated robbery charge.

Warren Martin, Washington's lawyer, says Washington has agreed to testify against others in the case. Madison County District Attorney Michael Guest tells local media that Washington's testimony should help prosecutors seek the death penalty against Byron McBride, who authorities say shot and killed Frazier.

Martin says Washington will be sentenced March 26. He says prosecutors recommend he spend 15 years in prison.

A third teen, Dwan Wakefield, faces juvenile charges that could be upgraded to adult charges.
