SPOKANE, Wash. -- The 16-year-olds accused of beating a World War II veteran to death last Wednesday night have had other run-ins with the law. 

Kenan Adams-Kinard and Demetrius Glenn were both booked into jail over the past week in connection with the killing of Delbert Belton, 88.  Investigators think the teens were trying to rob the victim in the Eagle’s Lodge parking lot.

A Spokane judge set Adams-Kinard’s bail Tuesday afternoon. 

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.

Prosecutors said the Delbert Belton murder case would trump any future court dates for other cases involving either Adams-Kinard or Glenn.
