Drunk, obnoxious, yes. Killer? No.
During Monday's closing arguments, the attorney for one of the Allentown brothers on trial for the beating death of Kutztown University student Kyle Quinn says Terry Kline is not a killer, according to The Morning Call.
Jack McMahon, a high-profile defense attorney from Philadelphia, said during his closing argument Monday, that his client, Terry Kline, was clearly drunk and obnoxious the night Kyle Quinn was killed, but said Kline can't be held responsible for the homicide.
McMahon asked jurors not to let their sympathy for Kyle Quinn and his family cloud their judgment.
Lawyers gave closing arguments in a courtroom packed with family members and young adults who are friends of the Klines and Quinn, of Warminster, Bucks County, according to The Reading Eagle.
