Men charged with beating death go to trial
MIDDLEBURG — The three men accused in the beating death of Donald Seebold III will go to trial on Monday in Snyder County. Trial begins Monday for 37-year-old Robert Reich of Beavertown, 39-year-old Christopher Aucker of Beavertown and 37-year-old Ryan Sprenkel of Middleburg.
After more than 15-years since Seebold’s death, the men are facing criminal homicide, conspiracy, and perjury charges. District Attorney Mike Piecuch says the men repeatedly punched and kicked Seebold at a party in July of 1997, claiming Seebold was flirting with Christopher Aucker’s wife.
All three men deny the charges. The three men will be tried together and the trial is expected to last about two weeks. (Ali Stevens)
