Jay Sedrish - Third Midnight Rider Producer Surrenders To Police

Film producer Jay Sedrish has turned himself in to police in Georgia four days after his associates, Jody Savin and Randall Miller, surrendered to authorities for their part in the death of a camera assistant on the set of Allman Brothers biopic Midnight Rider.

The trio has been indicted on charges of involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespass in connection to the death of 27-year-old Sarah Jones, who was killed while trying to escape an oncoming train as they shot footage for the film in Wayne County in February (14).

Sedrish, the project's executive producer and production manager, surrendered to police on Thursday (17Jul14). He was released after posting $27,700 (£16,300) bond. Miller and Savin turned themselves in on Sunday (13Jul14) and were also released.

The trio faces up to 10 years behind bars for involuntary manslaughter under Georgia law.

Production on Midnight Rider was halted immediately after the tragedy.
