Georgia State Patrol took out a first degree vehicular homicide warrant on a man charged with causing a crash that killed a noted sculptor.
Prosecutors said 20-year-old Corey Sease was already charged DUI, marijuana possession, and following too closely.
He crashed into Andy Davis's motorcycle early Saturday morning in Henry County.
Davis died after he was taken off life support Sunday night.
He sculpted the Ray Charles statue that was unveiled in downtown Albany to rave reviews in 2007.
Convention and Visitors Bureau officials said it quickly became one of the most recognizable pieces of art in the state.
Davis was recently picked to do a sculpture of Martin Luther King Junior for the state capitol grounds.
He had already started designing the statue. That project was since placed on hold.
