 |  By: Associated Press

State authorities have charged the owner of a dairy farm in central New York where a 14-year-old was killed last year, crushed under a hydraulic lift.

The attorney general's office says Wednesday that Luke Park is accused of falsifying business records and violating child labor laws at the Park Family Farm in Homer.

Park was arraigned in Homer Town Court and released. He's due back in court Aug. 16. The answering machine at his farm wasn't accepting new messages Wednesday.
