CLEVELAND — The U.S. Supreme Court won’t review the murder conviction of a man sentenced to death for killing a Cleveland police officer.
Cleveland.com reports that the case of 47-year-old Quisi (QWEE’-zee) Bryan is among those that the court has declined to review during this term.
He was condemned for shooting Wayne Leon in 2000 after the officer stopped Bryan for a traffic violation.
A federal judge overturned Bryan’s convictions in 2015 and concluded that prosecutors had improperly sought to remove a prospective juror because the juror was black. Bryan also is black.
A federal appeals court reversed that decision and reinstated his convictions in December. Bryan had asked the nation’s high court to review that ruling.
