Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - Two Spokane 16-year-old boys are pleading not guilty in the beating death of an 88-year-old World War II veteran.
    
Demetruis Glenn and Kenan Adams-Kinard entered the pleas Wednesday afternoon in separate appearances before a Spokane County Superior Court Judge.
   
Both Glenn and Adams-Kinard are accused of beating Delbert "Shorty" Belton to death outside an Eagles Lodge on August 22. He had survived being shot in the leg in 1945 in the battle for Okinawa.
    
The judge set November trial dates for each of the defendants. Both teens will be tried as adults.
    
They remain in jail on charges of first-degree murder, first-degree robbery and conspiracy to commit first-degree robbery. They face up to life in prison if convicted.
