Randall Miller and wife surrender to police over Midnight Rider set death

Director RANDALL MILLER and his producer wife JODY SAVIN have been released on bail after surrendering to police in Georgia. The couple and fellow producer Jay Sedrish were charged with involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespass related to the death of a camera assistant on the set of their Allman Brothers biopic Midnight Rider. Sarah Jones, 27, was hit by a train and killed in February (14) as the production crew shot footage on railroad tracks in Wayne County. Six other crew members were also injured. Miller and Savin turned themselves in to cops on Sunday (13Jul14) and were each freed on $27,000 bail. Executive producer Sedrish has yet to surrender to authorities. The trio faces up to 10 years behind bars if convicted of involuntary manslaughter, while the criminal trespass misdemeanor could land Miller and the producers 12 months in prison. Production on the movie, based on the memoirs of Gregg Allman, was halted following the train tragedy.
