Brothers go on trial in student's death

A jury has been selected for the trial of two Allentown brothers charged in the 2007 beating death of a Kutztown University student.

Twenty-one-year old Kenneth Kline and 22-year-old Terry Kline are charged with third-degree murder for allegedly attacking 19-year-old Kyle Quinn on Main Street in Kutztown. Jury selection was completed Monday and opening statements are scheduled for Wednesday.

A third man, 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 have said the Kutztown sophomore was attacked at random after the three men left a bar looking for someone to beat up.
