Jason Bryant is going to prison without the possibility of parole for the murder of his wife and her best friend in 2012 after she told him she was divorcing him.
DeKalb County Superior Court Judge Asha Jackson sentenced Bryant, 28, on April 30 after he was found guilty of malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault and terroristic threats.
He was found guilty for the March 7, 2012, shooting death of his wife, Angelena Bryant, who was heading to obtain a temporary protective order against her husband.
Her close friend Trina Nwoke, who was with her, also was killed.
DeKalb District Attorney Robert James said that domestic violence is often characterized by bruises and black eyes.
“But more often than not, we see cases where a victim dies at the hands of a person they may have been married to or dated,” he said. “Hopefully, today’s sentence will help the family find closure in knowing that Jason Bryant will never be a free man again.”
