COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Family and friends laid slain retired radio DJ David Rutherford to rest Tuesday.

His funeral was at noon at the New Providence Baptist Church in Columbus.

Columbus police issued an arrest warrant for 17-year-old Cody Mathis over the weekend in connection to Rutherford's murder.

Rutherford was the Columbus cab driver who was robbed and killed near his home, where later his body was dumped behind an East Highland Church. 

Rutherford went by David Ford on Magic 101.3 and retired a few years ago after a long career in radio.
