Two Charged with Murder After Beating Death During Phillies Game

By  | 

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Two men have been charged with murder and a
third is being sought in the beating death of a man outside the Philadelphia Phillies' ballpark during a game.

Investigators say a confrontation began between two groups Saturday inside a pub attached to Citizens Bank Park. Both groups were kicked out but the fight resumed outside, where police say 22-year-old David Sale, of nearby Lansdale, was beaten and kicked repeatedly in the head.

Thirty-five-year-old Charles Bowers and 45-year-old Jim Grove have been charged with murder. A warrant was also issued Monday for 28-year-old Francis Kirchner.

Court records show no lawyer for Bowers. A public defender representing Grove and a lawyer who has represented Kirchner did not immediately return messages left after hours Monday.
