MONTICELLO, Wis. — Authorities in Green County are identifying the man killed in a farming accident this week.
Green County Sheriff Jeff Skatrud says 62-year-old John P. Marty of rural Monticello died after being pinned under a combine on Little Sugar Lane Wednesday.

A Monticello firefighter was able to roll the combine off Marty, but lifesaving measures were unsuccessful.
