let it go where you got it from  and get yourself a healthy captive bred kingsnake.  You dont say what kind of kingsnake it is either so its hard to help..

skip earthworms. Either let it go or try a day old pinky mouse.

I agree with all of the above.

If a pinkie is to big for the baby snake, try feeding only the head of the pinkie. Or if even that is to big, try feeding a mouse tail. 

And like the people above said. If it is WC, then it's best to do an examination for internal parasites. Those can be the cause that the snake won't eat.
