WASHINGTON, Pa. —

The three men accused in the death of a Washington and Jefferson College football star were convicted of 3rd degree homicide charges Tuesday.

Channel 11’s Cara Sapida reported that Adam Hankins, Eric Wells and Troy Simmons pleaded guilty to robbery charges and the judge also ruled on the homicide charges.

Police said Wells, Hankins and Simmons mugged and punched 21-year-old Timothy McNerney while he was walking back  to campus with a friend in October 2012.

According to court testimony, McNerney was knocked to the ground, hitting his head.

The district attorney is now working to determine what the minimum and maximum sentence could be.

There was no word on when the men will be sentenced.
