$2 Million Bail Set in Death of WWII Veteran

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- A 16-year-old Spokane boy was ordered held on $2 million bail and will be tried as an adult in connection with last week's beating death of an 88-year-old veteran of World War II.

Demetrius L. Glenn is charged with first degree murder and first degree robbery in Spokane County District Court.

He made an initial court appearance Monday afternoon.

The teen turned himself in last Thursday night, the same day that Army veteran Delbert Belton died of his injuries.

The AP does not generally identify minors accused of a crime, but is naming the youth because of the severity of the charges.

A second 16-year-old boy arrested in the case has a court appearance scheduled for Tuesday, and will also be tried as an adult.
