20190101 - 2018 Year in Review - Rutland Herald

Tammy Carboni-Branchaud sits in Leo Branchaud, her late husband's 1996 International tractor following the setencing hearing at Rutland criminal court Thursday, July 26, 2018 of Thomas H. Velde, who struck and killed him in a hit and run accident in 2016. In an impactful homage to her husband Carboni-Branchaud drove the tractor from a friend's house to the hearing early this morning, "because he can't drive it anymore," she said. Velde was setenced to 19 years. (Robert Layman / Staff Photo)
