Francis Kirchner, Charles Bowers and Jim Groves were all sentenced to prison yesterday for the 2009 beating death of David Sale Jr. outside a Phillies game.
The three pleaded guilty to manslaughter in October. Sale was beaten outside the ballpark after a dispute between his friends and the defendants that began inside the game.
The Inquirer reports Kirchner was sentenced to nine to 18 years in prison, with credit for the 2 1/2 years served awaiting trial. Bowers was sentenced to five to 10 years and Groves’ sentence is two to four years.
