READING, Pa. (AP) - The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has reinstated conspiracy to commit murder charges against two Allentown brothers for the 2007 beating death of a Kutztown University student.

The Reading Eagle (https://bit.ly/1cTUOSp) said Wednesday that the March 5 ruling overturns a lower court decision that the conspiracy charge should not have been sent to the jury because there was no intent to kill.

Thirty-year-old Terry Kline Jr. and 27-year-old Kenneth Kline are serving 20 to 40 years in state prison. They were convicted in 2008 of third-degree murder and related counts for attacking Kutztown sophomore Kyle Quinn as he walked down a street.

The brothers had just left a bar where they celebrated Terry Kline’s birthday.

Osmer Deming, Kenneth Kline’s lawyer, said he does not plan to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
