Three indicted in Allman movie death

JESUP, GA (WALB) -

Jackie L. Johnson, District Attorney of the Brunswick Judicial Circuit, says that three people associated with the movie project that left a woman dead, and others injured, have been indicted in Jesup.

Randall Miller, Jody Savin, and Jay Sedrish are charged with Involuntary Manslaughter and Criminal Trespass.  Involuntary Manslaughter carries a potential sentence of ten years in prison under Georgia law.  Criminal Trespass is a misdemeanor and carries a potential sentence of twelve months.  

Johnson said: The charges stem from the February 2014 death of 27 year-old Sara Elizabeth Jones of Atlanta.  Jones was a camera assistant working on the film "Midnight Rider."  Jones and several other members of the film crew were located on the railroad tracks and trestle at Doctortown Landing in Wayne County, when Jones was struck and killed by an oncoming train. 

Other crew members were injured, but survived the collision. Miller and Savin are the owners of Unclaimed Freight Productions, Inc. which was filming "Midnight Rider."  Sedrish was the Executive Producer for the film. 

The Wayne County Sheriff's Office has been investigating the incident since February.  Detective Joe Gardner presented the case to the Grand Jury on July 2, 2014.   The District Attorney's Office would like to thank Sheriff John Carter and his officers for their investigation.  Because this is a pending case, this office cannot comment any further at this time.
