NBC News:

The lawyer for one of the 16-year-olds charged with fatally beating World War II veteran Delbert Belton said there's scant evidence against his client.

"There are no eyewitnesses and no forensic evidence that links either of the kids to the crime," said Christian Phelps, who is representing Demetruis Glenn.

Glenn and buddy Kenan Adams-Kinard are charged with first-degree murder and robbery in the slaying of the 88-year-old grandfather, who was found bloodied in his car outside the Fraternal Order of Eagles Lodge in Spokane, Wash, last week.

Adams-Kinard will make his first court appearance Tuesday, and police have said they expect he will be charged as an adult. Glenn was charged as an adult, and his lawyer said he plans to plead not guilty.

Both teens were captured on security cameras near the lodge around the time Belton was killed, and police said Glenn had cuts on his hand. Phelps would not say what his client was doing in the area.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
