The father of one of the teens implicated in last week’s beating death of a decorated World War II veteran thanked God for his son’s peaceful capture, saying the family had met with Spokane police and prayed for his safety. “I hope they find out what really happened,” said Steven Kinard, whose 16-year-old son Kenan Adams-Kinard was found by police hiding in a friend’s basement in the 500 block of West Montgomery Avenue early Monday and taken into custody. “Kenan’s a good kid,” the father added, calling Belton’s death a “tragedy.” The younger Kinard and Demetruis Glenn, also 16, are accused of killing 88-year-old Delbert Belton in a Wednesday robbery outside the Eagles Lodge in north Spokane/Kip Hill, SR.
