SPOKANE, Wash. -

Chris Phelps, the attorney for 16-year-old Demetrius Glenn, filed a motion to not release the investigation documents to the public until after he and his client have had a chance to review what the city aims to make public.

Glenn, along side his alleged accomplice Keenan Adams-Kinard, is accused of beating to death 88-year-old Delbert Belton outside the Eagles Lodge in North Spokane. In October, KHQ submitted several public record requests with the Spokane Police Department to review investigative documents, including the 911 calls the night Belton was murdered.

The murder of Belton, WWII vet, is one of the recent higher profile murder cases in Spokane. The murder has gained national attention through several media sources. Wednesday, Judge Annette Plese granted the request of Phelps. According to the ruling defense attorneys will have 60 days to review investigative documents and make any objections to documents being released.

KHQ has also learned the results of a DNA lab test conducted by the Washington State Crime Lab related to the Delbert Belton case. According to lab documents, several items found at the scene were tested for DNA and blood. The one piece of evidence that showed any DNA was a black glove nearly a block away from where Belton died. The blood of Delbert Belton was found on that glove, so was an unknown set of DNA which according to attorneys excludes Glenn and Adams-Kinard.
