Second Suspect Arrested in Death of WWII Veteran

Monday, 26 Aug 2013 10:23 AM

Spokane, Wash., police say they have arrested a second teenage suspect in the fatal beating of an 88-year-old World War II veteran.

The victim, Delbert Belton, was attacked and robbed in the parking lot of an Eagles Lodge in North Spokane last Wednesday night. One of the teens surrendered to authorities Thursday night, and he was being held on charges of robbery and first-degree murder. His identity has not been released because he is a juvenile.

Police say they arrested the second suspect, a 16-year-old, in a basement apartment in Spokane just after 3 a.m. Monday. The Associated Press is withholding his name because of his age.

Several other people with him were arrested for investigation of rendering criminal assistance.
