ATLANTA (AP) - A lawyer for the widow of the sculptor chosen to create a Martin Luther King Jr. statue for the Georgia Capitol grounds says his client has received a $2.35 million settlement in the artist’s July death.

Attorney John Webb tells the Daily Report (https://bit.ly/1GC0yoq ) his firm negotiated the settlement with the insurance company covering Corey Sease, who was driving the pickup truck that crashed into Andy Davis’ motorcycle.

Webb said the artist’s wife, Gerri Davis, was his high school sweetheart and the pair had two daughters.

Gov. Nathan Deal in June announced the selection of Andy Davis to craft the King sculpture for the Capitol. A full-time sculptor since 1999, Davis previously created statues of music legend Ray Charles in Albany and Chick-Fil-A founder Truett Cathy, among others.
