    On February 27, 2007, the South Carolina Supreme Court upheld Bryant's death sentence on direct appeal.

    On October 1, 2007, the US Supreme Court denied Bryant's certiorari petition.

    Stay of execution granted for Longs man in Horry County police officer slaying

    Convicted murderer James Nathaniel Bryant III sentenced to death in the slaying of an Horry County police officer will not be executed next month after an U.S. District Judge granted a motion for a stay earlier this month.

    Bryant was twice convicted and sentenced to death in the June 2000 beating and shooting death of Horry County police Cpl. Dennis Lyden. The 41-year-old was set to be executed at 6 p.m. Feb. 1, but appealed to U.S. District Court, where Judge Cameron McGowan Currie granted his motion for a stay of execution and gave Bryant until October to file a writ of certiorari.

    Currie wrote in the order that because the court would not have sufficient time to address Bryant’s pleadings his execution must be postponed.

    Lyden was killed after he told dispatchers he was stopping a suspicious vehicle at Deal Maker's Auto Sales on S.C. 544. Area neighbors called 911 after hearing a gunshot near where the 44-year-old officer was stopped. Responding officers found the five-year department veteran dead at the scene and conducted a massive search for suspects.

    Bryant of Longs was arrested a day later and convicted and sentenced to death in 2001 for beating and shooting Lyden.

    On appeal, the state Supreme Court overturned that conviction saying the trial was unfair because county police working for the solicitor's office worked on investigations of possible jurors.

    In 2004, a second jury again found Bryant guilty and sentenced him to death.

    In 2007, the state Supreme Court affirmed Bryant’s conviction and sentence, so he filed a writ of certiorari in the U.S. Supreme Court. But that was denied.

    Bryant then filed for post-conviction relief, but was denied in 2010. Bryant appealed but was denied so an execution notice was filed by the Horry County Clerk’s office.

    Bryant filed his motion for a stay of execution and seeks the appointment of attorneys to help him submit his pleadings in U.S. District Court.

    Bryant is being held on death row at Lieber Correctional Institute.

    On September 9, 2019, Wood's habeas petition was GRANTED by United States District Court Bruce Hendricks (Obama) on the grounds of ineffective assistance of counsel for counsel's alleged failure to insist on the removal of a hearing-impaired juror.

    He killed an Horry cop, but had a death sentence vacated. Heres the latest on his case.

    By Alex Lang
    Myrtle Beach Sun News

    A federal appeals court is hearing arguments on whether it should support the vacating of a death sentence for a man who killed an Horry County police officer.

    James Bryant was convicted after a second trial for murder in the death of Horry County police Cpl. Dennis Lyden. However, last year a federal judge vacated the death sentence imposed by an Horry County jury delivered in the case.

    Now, prosecutors and Bryants attorneys are arguing in the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals on whether Bryant should be executed for killing the officer.

    Bryant is currently on death row in a South Carolina prison.

    In June 2000, Lyden pulled Bryant over on S.C. 544 during a traffic stop. A fight began and Bryant got Lydens gun and shot and killed the officer.

    Bryant has said that he felt he was the victim of racial profiling, which led to the traffic stop. Bryant is Black and Lyden was white.

    The jury convicted him during the guilt phase and then sentenced him to death in 2001.

    On appeal, the state Supreme Court overturned that conviction saying the trial was unfair because county police working for the solicitors office worked on investigations of possible jurors.

    In 2004, a second jury again found Bryant guilty and sentenced him to death. After several appeals attempts were denied, a federal judge in 2019 vacated the death sentence after concerns that an Horry County juror had a hearing disability and did not understand all the testimony.

    The decision to vacate the sentence paved the way for a third trial-though it would only determine his sentence and not guilt. Earlier this year, prosecutors appealed that decision to the court a step below the U.S. Supreme Court.

    Over the summer, prosecutors filed court documents that detailed why the death penalty sentence should be reinstated. In the filing, lawyers say that Bryant failed to prove that the juror missed important testimony because of her disability.

    That juror testified during later court proceedings and said she heard the testimony, according to court records.

    The juror also disclosed her disability during the jury selection process and told prosecutors that she could hear their questions, the filing states.

    At no point during the guilt phase of Bryants trial did Juror 342 respond to the courts repeated examinations that she could not hear, or that she missed testimony, lawyers contended.

    The prosecutors argue that the death sentence was not flawed and that Bryant should again face execution.

    Bryant and his attorneys have yet to answer the federal appeals court filing.

    The panel that heard South Carolina's appeal was made up of Judges Niemeyer (G.H.W. Bush), Wynn (Obama) and Thacker (Obama).
