Trial in death of WW2 veteran delayed until March

SPOKANE — The trial of two Spokane teenagers accused of beating a World War II veteran to death has been pushed back to March 17.

The trial was originally set for Nov. 4.

But the attorney for 16-year-old Kenan Adams-Kinard asked a Spokane County judge on Friday to delay the trial.

Adams-Kinard and 16-year-old Demetruis Glenn both face charges of first-degree murder, first-degree robbery and conspiracy to commit first-degree robbery. They could face life in prison if convicted.

Both teens are charged in the beating death of 88-year-old Delbert Belton in his car outside the Eagles Ice Arena in Spokane on Aug. 21. Belton was a survivor of the Battle for Okinawa during World War II.
