READING - Two brothers were sentenced yesterday to 20 to 40 years in prison for their roles in the September 2007 beating death of a Kutztown University sophomore from Bucks County.

Terry Kline, 23, and Kenneth Kline, 22, both of Allentown, offered tearful apologies to the family of Kyle Quinn, 19. Quinn, of Warminster, was attacked at random a few blocks from campus after the brothers and a third man left a bar looking for someone to beat up.

The Klines were convicted last month of conspiracy to commit third-degree murder and aggravated assault, but acquitted of third-degree murder.

A third defendant, Timothy Gearhart, pleaded guilty in August to third-degree murder, admitting that he hit Quinn in the head with a wooden table leg during the fight. He was sentenced to 20 to 40 years in prison.
