Georgia filmmakers charged with manslaughter

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- Two filmmakers charged with manslaughter in connection with a train crash that killed a member of their movie crew have been allowed to return to California after turning themselves in at a Georgia jail for booking.

Don Samuel, an attorney representing "Midnight Rider" director Randall Miller and his wife, Jody Savin, said Tuesday the couple reported to the Wayne County jail in southeast Georgia on Sunday. He says within 30 minutes they were freed on bonds of $25,000 apiece.

Miller, Savin and executive producer Jay Sedrish were charged with manslaughter and criminal trespassing July 3. They were filming a movie about singer Gregg Allman when a train plowed into their crew Feb. 20.  Camera assistant Sarah Jones was killed.

Samuel says his clients are "absolutely pleading not guilty."
