Hello,

Every court works a little bit differently. So call the courthouse, bright and early in the morning and tell the clerk there is a death in the family and you can't make court. He'll let you know who you contact.

Check tomorrow to make sure that no warrant issued anyway. If there is a warrant, you will want to come back to court as soon as possible and appear before the judge with proof of the death so that he understands that you were being truthful with the court. In my experience, he'll simply lift the warrant at that time.

I was supposed to say "check back the day after tomorrow to make sure no warrant issued anyway."
