Two Washington teens accused of killing a World War II veteran are being targeted by the Aryan Brotherhood.
Court documents indicate that the white supremacist group may have placed a $10,000 bounty on the heads of the black teens.
The details are part of a court filing explaining why a judge moved Kenan Adams-Kinard, 16, to protective adult custody rather than returning him to juvenile detention before he and Demetruis Glenn, also 16, were formally charged in Spokane County Superior Court.
District Court Judge Debra Hayes ordered Adams-Kinard held in Spokane County Jail on $3 million bond Aug. 27, nearly a week after police say he and Glenn beat 88-year-old Delbert Belton to death in his car outside the Eagles Ice Arena in north Spokane.
Spokance police Tom Hill is in charge of transporting prisoners. He informed Judge Hayes that his agency had received word the Aryan Brotherhood had placed a bounty on the suspects. In a letter received by police from Adams-Kinard, the teens says he began pummeling Belton after a crack deal gone wrong.
The teens went on trial for the murder in March, with the possibility of one of them seeking to split the cases.
