(hennemusic) Jay Sedrish, the executive producer/unit production manager of the ill-fated Gregg Allman biopic "Midnight Rider", waived his right for an arraignment on Monday and entered a not guilty plea to criminal trespassing and involuntary manslaughter in the on-set death of 27-year-old assistant camera assistant Sarah Jones.
Seven other crew members were injured in the incident, which took place on the first day of filming in February, and is reported to have taken place while filming a dream sequence that involved a bed being placed on railway tracks.
Production on the film was shut down following the tragic incident, and has yet to resume. Last month, Sedrish, co-producer Jody Savin and director Randall Miller were indicted on involuntary manslaughter charges in the February incident. more on this story
