SPOKANE VET BEATEN: New Court Documents Reveal Details About The Brutal Attack

SPOKANE, Wash. - Court documents released Wednesday unveil new details about what happened the night Delbert Belton was brutally attacked and details about the morning Kenan Adams-Kinard was taken into custody.

The documents say Adams-Kinard's mother received an anonymous tip about where Kenan Adams-Kinard was hiding. She then notified Spokane Police around 2:00 a.m. August 26th.   

Shortly after, Spokane Police went to a home in the 500 block of W Montgomery where Adams-Kinard was believed to be hiding in a basement apartment. Officers were advised it was an older home that had been made into numerous apartments.  

According to court documents, officers noticed movement in the home, but no on answered the door when they knocked. It says police announced their presence outside of the home, established a perimeter, and a short time later Adams-Kinard came out and was taken into custody.

There was also a young woman and three other juveniles hiding inside the apartment. All four were arrested for 1st Degree Rendering Criminal Assistance. Court documents also say officers then made a sweep of the home to make sure no one else was hiding inside. During the sweep, documents say an officer found a letter sitting on a bed that appeared to be a signed confession letter that referenced the homicide of Delbert Belton. According to court documents, the signature appears to belong to Kenan Adams-Kinard.  

Court documents state: "In the note, the author claims that he called ‘Shorty,' and they agreed to meet at ‘the ice arena.' He claims that he was going to ‘get a zip of crack' from him. The author admits being at the scene of the crime and contacting Victim ‘Shorty.' The author claims that they ‘socked' the victim a total of three times before robbing him. It should be noted that ‘Shorty' is Victim Belton's nickname."  

Another court document says that in the hand written letter, the writer wrote that they had gone to Lowes to use the bathroom and then met "Shorty" at the Eagles Ice Arena where "the writer" purchased a zip of crack cocaine from "Shorty."    

The court document reads: "The writer then says that they  ‘proceeded to sock him.' The writer says they opened up the door to the car and then ‘socked him two more times. I took his wallet and another ounce of crack from his pockets. He was unconscious so I made sure he was still breathing, and then I took off.'"  

According to court documents, Spokane Police are also searching the cell phones of Demetrius Glenn and Kenan Adams-Kinard because people often use cell phones to call and text immediately after committing a crime to let other people know what happened. The letter found also claims that Glenn and Adams-Kinard called Belton before meeting him the night of the attack.  

The documents also state that one of the juveniles found in the home with Adams-Kinard told detectives that Adams-Kinard said he was trying to buy crack cocaine from "Shorty" and "Shorty" ripped him off so Adams-Kinard punched "Shorty" in the face.  

Documents also say Adams-Kinard told the juvenile that he threw "Shorty" in the back seat where he punched him at least two more times, took his money back, and everything else "Shorty" had in his pockets.  

Finally, according to court documents, a juvenile that was found in the home, told detectives that Adams-Kinard said he and Glenn took off running in opposite directions.
