The two teenage boys, 16, charged with beating to death Delbert “Shorty” Belton, 88, as he crossed a parking lot at a Washington club entered not guilty pleas on Friday.
One of the teenagers arrested in the brutal beating death of 88-year-old Delbert “Shorty” Belton says he initially approached the World War II veteran to buy crack, then the exchange turned violent.
Police on Monday arrested the second of two suspects accused of beating to death a World War II veteran, 88, as he walked across the parking lot toward his Spokane, Wash., Eagle Lodge to play pool.
Kenan reportedly wrote that he and his friend beat Mr. Belton because he didn't give them the crack cocaine they had paid him for, The Blaze reported.
That bit of information came to light in court on Monday, when prosecutors said police discovered a letter one of the suspects, Kenan Adams-Kinard, 16, wrote to his mother.
