Brothers get 20 to 40 years in killing that sparked hike

Two Pennsylvania brothers, who were convicted of killing a sophomore at the state’s Kutztown University in 2007, were sentenced Friday to 20 to 40 years in prison, according to the Reading Eagle newspaper.

The victim, Kyle Quinn, was the brother of Dennis Quinn, 23, who worked for Colorado Conservation Corps in Grand Junction last summer.

Terry D. Kline Jr., 23, and his brother, Kenneth R., 22, were sentenced on charges of aggravated assault, conspiring to commit aggravated assault and third-degree murder in connection with Kyle Quinn’s death.

Just four days before he was killed, Kyle Quinn had decided to hike the Appalachian Trail with Dennis that next spring. Kyle had started to gather camping supplies such as a backpack and a sleeping bag for the more than 2,700-mile hike from Georgia to Maine.

Now that Kyle is gone, Dennis plans to hike the trail in his memory. He’s seeking by-the-mile
sponsors to contribute to a nonprofit group in Kyle’s name in an effort to raise money for high school students in Pennsylvania to attend college.
