A truck driver from Indiana is charged with killing a farmer from Charlotte in a traffic accident.

Daniel Burkey faces one count of negligent homicide.

He could get two years in prison if convicted.

Eaton county prosecutors say Burkey was at fault when his semi crashed into Duane Tirrell's tractor on Cochran Road near Charlotte last April.

Burkey will be back in court on July 20.
