    SPOKANE, Wash. – One of the 16-year-olds charged in Washington state with the killing of a World War II veteran reportedly suggested Tuesday that the attack came after the veteran shorted him and another teen on a sale of crack cocaine.

    Police discovered the drug-dealing claim in a letter they found after they arrested Kenan Adams-Kinard early Monday morning, Spokane County deputy prosecutor Larry Haskell said.

    Haskell said the letter contends that Adams-Kinard and Demetrius L. Glenn, 16, were buying crack cocaine from Delbert Belton, 88, when the attack occurred Aug. 21. That notion was scoffed at by family members and friends of Belton, who was known as Shorty because he was little more than 5 feet tall.

    Either this kid's got a vivid imagination, is a potential criminal defense lawyer, or Shorty was the world's oldest crack dealer.

    My guess is, it's one of the first two options.

    That's an interesting twist. But definitely not out of the realm of possibilites. However committing a murder because someone cheated you during the committing of a felony doesn't exactly win you brownie points with a jury.
