SPOKANE, Wash. —

Authorities say investigators discovered fingerprints linking two teenagers to an 88-year-old World War II veteran who was slain last month.

Police say Demetruis Glenn and Kenan Adams-Kinard, both 16, beat Delbert "Shorty" Belton to death Aug. 22 while he sat in his car, according to an affidavit. Investigators found Glenn's prints on the exterior rear driver's side door and the interior of the rear driver's side passenger door and Adams-Kinard's prints were on the exterior driver's door and the interior of the rear driver's side passenger door, according to the affidavit.

Glenn and Adams-Kinard will be arraigned Sept. 12. Both face charges of first-degree murder and two charges of first-degree robbery. They are being tried as adults.

The Associated Press does not generally identify minors accused of a crime but is naming the teens because of the severity of the charges.
