Bail in shooting set at $500,000

Spokane County Superior Court Judge Gregory Sypolt set a bond of $500,000 Friday for Jahvory N. Kinard on charges of first-degree assault and first-degree robbery related to a shooting in a Wendy’s parking lot.

A woman who had been shot in the chest was dropped off at the Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center emergency room on Jan. 3. She told police that she had met a man she knew as “JV” to buy drugs, according to court documents. He robbed her of $900 instead and shot her when she fought back, the woman said.

Police identified and tracked down 19-year-old Kinard using cellphone records. The woman was able to identify Kinard in a photo lineup, court documents say.

Sypolt also set a bond of $100,000 on a previous charge for second-degree assault. The case is currently set for trial in February, and one of Kinard’s release conditions was that he would not be arrested on any new charges. The charge was filed in 2012 after Kinard allegedly pointed a gun at a cab driver.

Kinard is the brother of 16-year-old Kenan Adams-Kinard, who is accused of beating 88-year-old World War II veteran Delbert Belton to death last year.
