SPOKANE, Wash. -- A teenage girl accused of helping murder suspect Kenan Adams-Kinard hide from police may see her charges dropped.

Prosecutors confirmed they filed a motion Friday afternoon to dismiss charges of First Degree Rendering Criminal Assistance without prejudice.  However, prosecutors could re-file that charge if more evidence surfaced against the teen girl.

Spokane Police had originally accused three teens of helping Adams-Kinard, 16, hide from law enforcement after he allegedly murdered Delbert Belton with his friend Demetrius Glenn.  Investigators said the 88-year-old World War II veteran was found dead in the Eagle’s Lodge parking lot in August 21.  Prosecutors said they only ended up charging two of the teens accused of hiding Adams-Kinard.

After the motion to dismiss charges Friday, only one of the teens accused faced consequences for allegedly helping Adams-Kinard while he was on the run.
