Two Spokane teenagers accused of killing a World War II veteran will stand trial in January. Kenan Adams-Kinard and Demetruis Glenn, both 17, appeared in court Wednesday in advance of their scheduled trial for the murder of Delbert “Shorty” Belton on Jan. 12. The teens are accused of beating Belton to death in his car after robbing him in August 2013. Both are being tried as adults. Their scheduled trial has been pushed back several times, but all three attorneys involved said Wednesday they were ready for trial. Jury selection is scheduled to begin Jan. 12.
