Delbert Belton murder case: Kenan Adams-Kinard changes plea to get a ‘deal’

The Delbert Belton murder case is set to move ahead next week, but new reports point to one of the teens charged with murder to strike a deal with prosecutors.

KHQ is reporting that “Kenan Adams-Kinard is expected to change his not guilty plea to guilty for the murder of Delbert Belton. In exchange prosecutors will drop the lesser changes against Kinard for theft and assault.”

While the report says that neither side has “agreed to the deal” prosecutors may be finding it difficult to “prove the two suspects intended to kill Belton; the only weapons involved may be the teen’s fists. Prosecutors can prove Belton died in the course of a robbery and that’s why the suspects are charged with first degree murder,” says KXLY Jan. 6 in their report.

Belton, 88, was a WWII veteran murdered by the two teens during the summer of 2013 during a “robbery gone bad.” Adams-Kinard was just 16 when he was arrested and will join Demetrius Glenn when their trial was expected to begin on January 12, 2015.

Adams-Kinard is expected to change his plea in front of a judge on Wednesday. Either way, the young men are expected to get nothing less than twenty years in prison.
