PITTSBURGH (AP) - A man convicted of beating a black man and pushing him onto subway tracks in Pittsburgh almost a year ago has been sentenced to three to six years in prison.

Twenty-two-year-old Ryan Kyle was sentenced Wednesday in Allegheny County. He pleaded guilty in February to aggravated assault, ethnic intimidation and robbery conspiracy as prosecutors dropped an attempted murder charge.

Authorities said Kevin Lockett was tossed off the Wood Street station platform and beaten following a May 30 Kenny Chesney concert at Heinz Field. Four other men were sentenced to probation in the case.
