MADISON COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

It's almost been a year since a Jackson six-year-old was kidnapped, shot dead and abandoned on a rural road.

For the second time in the last few months, a judge has set bond for one of the suspects in the shooting death of 6-year-old Kingston Frazier. 

Kingston Frazier's father, grandmother and other loved ones made their case before judge William Chapman opposing bond for Dwan Wakefield.

Despite these pleas, a Madison County judge set Dwan Wakefield's bond at $275,000. Wakefield is charged with accessory after the fact to murder, accessory after the fact to kidnapping and accessory after the fact to motor vehicle theft.

He was originally released on a $275,000 bond in November 2017.

While out on that bond, pictures surfaced of Wakefield out on a cruise in Mexico. This time, the judge added stipulations to his bond.

Wakefield cannot leave the state of Mississippi and will have to wear an electronic monitoring device.

Prosecutors assured family members they plan to prosecute Wakefield who is facing a maximum of 45 years in jail if convicted.

"I can promise the family we will hold these defendants accountable and just because this defendant is allowed to make bond today, does not mean this defendant will ultimately won't be convicted and sentenced to prison," said Michael Guest.

Judge Chapman said he appreciated Kingston's family's comments, but the law states he must grant bond, especially since Wakefield had no priors.
