A 58-year-old sheriff's deputy has died after a fall at his rural home in south-central Nebraska.
The Franklin County Sheriff's Office says Deputy Jeff Billar, of Upland, climbed a ladder to trim a tree on Saturday evening.
Billar fell about 25 feet and suffered internal injuries. The sheriff's office says Billar was pronounced dead at Franklin County Memorial Hospital in Franklin.
He'd been a deputy for the county since May 2011.
