Court records show 16-year-old murder suspect Demetrius Glenn has a record dating back two years.
In the afternoon on September 29, 2011, Glenn was with a group in Rochester Park near Rowan and Magnolia in north Spokane. Documents say Glenn and the group of teenagers he was with surrounded and confronted another teenager because they saw a black bandana on the ground which they took as an act of disrespect. Glenn was convicted of 4th Degree Assault, Riot and Obstruction after attacking the person with a stick or bat with nails in the end of it. He was placed on probation and later agreed to pay restitution. In early 2013, Glenn had two run-ins with law enforcement. On February 9th, he was charged with 3rd Degree Malicious Mischief after damaging a garage door and on March 18th he was arrested and charged with driving without a license. He was set to go to court in both of those cases in just two weeks. The second suspect, 16-year-old Kenan Adams-Kinard was also arrested earlier this year after stealing a phone on an STA bus. The girl he grabbed the phone from also had scratches on her hand from the incident and Adams-Kinard was charged with 2nd Degree Robbery. Later he was able to plead that charge down to 3rd Degree Theft and 4th Degree Assault by agreeing to plead guilty. He was sentenced to 6 months of community supervision and 30 hours of community service. On August 23rd, just two days after the attack on Delbert Belton, a bench warrant was issued for Adams-Kinard for violating the terms of his probation.
