Two juveniles are facing murder charges after court Thursday.

16-year-old Demetrius Glenn and 15-year-old Kenan Adams-Kinard (pictured at left) were formally charged in Spokane County Superior Court with 1st Degree Armed Robbery and 1st Degree Murder.

Friends of murdered WWII Veteran Delbert Belton crowded the courtroom, as did supporters of the two boys. The 88-year-old man was found dead in the parking lot of the Eagles Lodge the evening of August 21st.  Prosecutors believe the two were trying to rob Belton.

According to court documents and KREM-2 TV,  the two suspects had a lengthy criminal history:

“Both Adams-Kinard and Glenn have criminal records on file in Spokane County Superior Court.
Kenan Adams-Kinard pleaded guilty to theft and fourth degree assault after authorities said he stole a cell phone out of a woman’s lap on an STA bus in May.  He served just over one month for the theft and paid the victim $400.

According to court documents, Glenn pleaded guilty to an assault and riot charge in January.  The attack was reported in September 2011.  Investigators said Glenn and several other individuals attacked a teenage boy at Rochester Park in Northeast Spokane.  Glenn admitted he hit the boy with a stick, which one witness described as having a nail attached to the end.  It was Glenn’s first juvenile conviction.  He did not serve any time for the attack.

Glenn was also due in court in September on a misdemeanor malicious mischief charge for allegedly damaging a garage door last February.”

Officials have said this case will take precedence over any other proceedings they may have been facing.
