SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Bail has been set at $3 million for a 16-year-old boy arrested in the beating death of an 88-year-old World War II veteran.
Spokane County District Judge Debra Hayes on Tuesday also ordered Kenan Adams-Kinard moved from a juvenile jail to the Spokane County Jail. He will be tried as an adult and faces up to life in prison if convicted.
On Monday, bail was set at $2 million for another 16-year-old, Demetrius L. Glenn.
Both teens are charged in last week's beating death of Delbert Belton, who survived the Battle of Okinawa.
But Hayes says Adams-Kinard is more of a flight risk if he's released. The judge noted that Glenn turned himself in, while Adams-Kinard hid out for days before he was arrested early Monday.
Both teens face charges of first-degree murder and first-degree robbery.
