NEW FRANKLIN, Ohio — A man who pleaded guilty to raping two girls under the age of 13 will never be sentenced.

That’s because Richard Schilling, 74, was killed by a tractor while working on a farm in New Franklin Tuesday.

His crimes were committed in April through October of last year.

Schilling’s sentencing was originally set for July 2 but was postponed until July 16 because a pre-sentence investigation report was not yet finished.
