Three Pennsylvania police officers are set to stand trial Monday after being charged with obstructing the investigation of the 2008 beating death of an undocumented immigrant.

Prosecutors say that former Shenandoah Police Chief Matthew Nestor, along with officers William Moyer and Jason Hayes organized a cover-up to protect high school football players who beat 25-year-old Mexican immigrant Luis Ramirez to death in July of 2008.

Two of the athletes were convicted this past October of committing a federal hate crime for beating and kicking Ramirez. When sentenced later this month, they each face life in prison.
