A 76-year-old Jefferson County man was killed in a farm accident at his rural home on Friday.
Charles Walter died after he became pinned under the front wheel of a tractor while trying to cut down tree limbs at his home southeast of Oskaloosa, said a Jefferson County Sheriff's spokesman.
The sheriff's office received news of Walter's death around 6 p.m. Friday after Walter had been found by his son-in-law, Gene Norman. Walter was pronounced dead at the scene.
Funeral arrangements are pending at Rumsey Funeral Home in Lawrence.
