Police say the suspects stole mother Ebony Archie's Toyota Camry from outside a Kroger on Interstate 55 in Jackson around 1:15am Thursday, with 6-year Kingston Frazier in the back seat. Tyree Jones said was abandoned in a muddy ditch about 15 miles (20 kilometers) north of Jackson, Miss.
According to CBS News, authorities said a surveillance video and a witness helped them identify their first suspect.
According to the Clarion-Ledger, an Amber Alert was issued for 6-year-old Kingston Frazier who was left in a running auto around 1 a.m. when his mother, Ebony Archie, went into a Kroger's grocery store in Jackson.
According to Hinds Country Sheriff's Department Officer Pet Luke, the kidnapped MS 6-year-old's body was found inside the recovered vehicle.
All three will be charged as adults with capital murder for the killing of a child during a kidnapping, District Attorney Michael Guest said in a press conference Thursday.
Three men were arrested and charged with capital murder for Kingston's death: Byron McBride, D'Allen Washington and Dwan Wakefield.
Jackson Public Schools said grief counselors were made available for students and staff at the school. Madison County Coroner Alex Breeland says Kingston was shot multiple times.
Security video shows that after Archie left, another vehicle drove up and a man got out and then drove off in the Camry.

Just before 10 a.m., authorities canceled the Amber Alert. Police and family members plead for the boy to be returned or dropped off anywhere unharmed.
It was not until later, Mason said, that Archie told authorities that her son was in the vehicle. There is nothing out there worth taking a 6-year-old's life...
The Hinds County Sheriff's Office declined a HuffPost request for comment.
