A 19-year-old Kutztown University student was fatally beaten on Main Street in Kutztown early Friday morning by three men who were roving the small college town looking for a fight, authorities said.
Kyle G. Quinn of Warminster, Bucks County, was discovered lying in a pool of blood on the sidewalk in the 100 block about 2:30 by a borough police officer, said borough police and Berks County District Attorney Mark C. Baldwin.
The officer apprehended five men from Allentown — none of whom is a university student — in a car parked at the scene.
Authorities later charged three of them in the assault: Terry D. Kline Jr., who turned 22 Thursday, his brother Kenneth R. Kline, 21, and Timothy R. Gearhart, 23.
The three were arraigned late Friday afternoon before District Judge Wally Scott in Reading. Scott sent them to Berks County Prison in lieu of $10 million bail each.
The Kline brothers and Gearhart were charged with aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person, recklessly endangering another person and conspiracy.
Baldwin said he expects to file murder charges following an autopsy scheduled for today in Lehigh Valley Hospital near Allentown.
Quinn was taken to the hospital by helicopter after being transferred from an ambulance at the Kutztown Airport. A staff doctor pronounced him dead at 3:36 a.m.( Full ArticleCollapse )
