Several years ago, Action News reporter Nora Muchanic interviewed Tony Russo, the farmer killed Thursday in a freak accident on his farm.



New Jersey correspondent Nora Muchanic spoke with Russo last year during an interview.

Russo was well known, and typically sold 100,000 cases of corn a year.

Police say the tractor, operated by Russo, was pulling seeding equipment when the accident occurred.
