Plea deal for second suspect in Spokane beating death of WWII veteran Delbert 'Shorty' Belton

The second teen accused of beating a World War II veteran to death during a robbery in Spokane accepted a deal Monday and pleaded guilty to murder.

In return for the plea from 17-year-old Demetruis Glenn, prosecutors dropped a robbery charge.

The Spokesman-Review reports ( ) prosecutors will recommend a 16-year prison term when Glenn is sentenced March 19.

The first 17-year-old prosecuted in the case, Kenan Adams-Kinard, also pleaded guilty to murder. He was sentenced last month to 20 years in prison.

Prosecutors say the two killed 88-year-old Delbert "Shorty" Belton in August 2013 outside an Eagles Lodge. They say Belton, who survived the Battle of Okinawa, was killed for his wallet.
