Brothers Go On Trial In Death Of Pa. Student

READING, Pa. (AP) - Jury selection is under way for two brothers charged in the 2007 beating death of a Kutztown University student.

Kenneth and Terry Kline of Allentown are charged with third-degree murder for allegedly attacking 19-year-old Kyle Quinn on Main Street in Kutztown.

A third man, 24-year-old Timothy Gearhart, pleaded guilty in August to hitting Quinn in the head with a wooden chair leg a few blocks from campus. He was sentenced to 20 to 40 years in prison.

Police say the Kutztown sophomore was attacked at random after the three men left a bar looking for someone to beat up.
