Wakefield's aunt, Eva Roby, said the accusations don't fit her nephew's character. "We love Ebony dearly, we love Kingston dearly, it's just totally sad for the community like I said", Archie said. All three will be charged as adults with capital murder for the killing of a child during a kidnapping. She was visibly shaking at points and was physically supported by family members as she walked out of the courtroom.
Frazier's granduncle Amos Archie spoke shortly after the hearing, saying the family stood by the boy's mother.
The judge said that the serious nature of the crime and the possibility that they could be flight risks was the reason they were denied bond. It's painful. It's painful for her mother and father and it's painful for all our family.
Madison County District Attorney Michael Guest briefed reporters Monday about the case and said there would be no more arrests.
None of the three entered a plea Monday, and they are scheduled for a June 26 preliminary hearing. The boy was shot in the back of the head, Madison County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Heath Hall said.
