The other suspect in the murder case, Kenan Adams-Kinard, also age 16, is still at large. The boy’s family reached out to KHQ 06 to plead for him to surrender.

“He’s out there and if anybody knows where he’s at or something, they really need to contact the family because we are trying to bring him in,” Adams-Kinard’s Dad said to KHQ. “We don’t want this prolonged, we really need to get this over with and get through with this and find out what’s really the situation, of really, what happened in this tragedy.”

Police Chief Frank Straub held a brief press conference about the investigation into the beating death of an Delbert Belton, age 88. Straub again stressed that the beating was not racially motivated since both teens are black and Belton was white.

Chief Straub said the two suspects were looking to commit a robbery and that instead the suspects beat Belton with a flashlight outside of the Eagles Ice-A-Rena. He died Thursday morning.

Glenn was booked into Juvenile Detention on 1st Degree Robbery and 1st Degree Murder charges late Thursday night. The teen had a cut on his hand and the damaged flashlight was located by police,  according to court documents.

Sources told KREM 2 News that Demetrius Glenn has a lengthy criminal history. He was convicted of assault and riot and was supposed to be in court on August 28th for another charge.
