19 May 2017

Three Mississippi teenagers face capital murder charges in the death of a 6-year-old boy who was found dead in his mother's car on Thursday. The child was slept in a car and then stolen while his mother was inside. A Honda Civic drove up and a passenger got out and jumped into the car before both cars sped off. Police found the kidnapped boy dead in the back of the car about eight hours later on a rural Madison County road about 10 miles from the store. He had been shot at least once. The boy was scheduled to graduate from first grade on Thursday.  Three youths were arrested and are being charged with capital murder.
