SPOKANE, Wash. -- Spokane Police are still looking for the second suspect they believe participated in the beating death of an 88-year-old World War II veteran.

Authorities are still looking for Kenan Adams-Kinard, 16. He’s described as an African American man, about 5’10 with a medium build.

Detectives believe he is in the Spokane area.  

Chief Straub said Demetrius Glenn and Adams-Kinard were looking to commit a robbery in North Spokane on Wednesday night near Francis and Lidgerwood. Straub said that instead the suspects beat Belton with a flashlight outside of the Eagles Ice-A-Rena. He died Thursday morning.

Officers arrested Glenn Thursday night in Spokane after his lawyer contacted Spokane Police. He and Adams-Kinard do have gang ties according to Straub. Both teenage suspects are African American. However, Straub said the attack was not racially motivated.

Glenn was booked into Juvenile Detention on 1st Degree Robbery and 1st Degree Murder charges late Thursday night.  The teen had a cut on his hand, according to court documents. He was scheduled to make his first court appearance for the murder and robbery charges Monday in Spokane.  He is expected to be charged as an adult.

Major Crimes Detectives believe Glenn and Adams-Kinard beat Belton during a robbery.
