Two Allentown brothers are convicted of conspiring to commit third-degree murder and aggravated assault in the beating death of a Kutztown University student. But a Berks County jury acquitted 23-year-old Terry Kline and 22-year-old Kenneth Kline of third-degree murder. The verdict came Monday evening after deliberating more than five hours.

Conspiring to commit third-degree murder has a sentence of 20 to 40 years in state prison.

A third man, 24-year-old Timothy Gearhart, has already pleaded guilty to third-degree murder and conspiracy in the death of 19-year-old Kutztown University sophomore Kyle Quinn. Gearhart admitted that he hit Quinn in the head with a wooden table leg during a fight.
