BOLIVIA, NC (WWAY) — A Brunswick County jury convicted Craig Bryant of first degree murder today. The group of 12 deliberated late thursday and all day friday before reaching a verdict this morning.

After weeks of testimony, the jury said it had enough proof that Bryant murdered Shallotte real estate agent Adam Bradshaw in 2008. The judge sentenced him to life in prison without the chance of parole. His attorney says he plans to appeal.
    
The defense argued that bradshaw was a drug dealer who had many enemies. Ultimately, though, the jury did not buy that theory.

Prosecutors said Bryant had his girlfriend Lora Moultrie lure Bradshaw to an abandoned house off Watt Road and then shot him from inside the house.

Moultrie testified against bryant two weeks ago. She said Bryant told her he was going to kill Bradshaw in order to gain ownership of land that belonged to his family before Bradshaw sold it.

The jurors heard from a number of people throughout the case, including Moultrie, but Bryant did not take the stand.

Moultrie pleaded guilty to second degree murder last year because of the part she played in getting Bradshaw to her home on Watt Road. Moultrie was sentenced today to between 10 and 13 years in prison for her involvement in the murder.
 
Bradshaw’s family testified during a hearing for Moultrie. They said her testimony helped prove Bryant’s guilt.

    Sorry Craig that this real estate a-hole had to bring you to this. Believe us, we understand. As for the rest of the phony- appeals of “sadness”, they would not have given a d**n if you were white, they are only upset because “one of their own” was killed. Well, Good riddance to the real estate agent, 12 less in the world. Keep cleaning. hugs and kisses Craig. Forget the others, they are self-righteous and really didn’t even know that real estate jack-off. Bet if that same guy stole THEIR property that we would not be reading all of these bleeding heart comments. People are full of cow’s dung. It’s most likely that the rest of the commenters have committed a crime sometime or another in their own lives. It’s all BS. Hope you get out soon so you can take some more down…sorry about you’re having to go to prison, though. It’s as bad out here as it is in there. The only difference is that they slap a little make up on society and call it “civilization”. It is truly no better out here. Your nay-sayers are just being racist neurotics as usual. Of course you’d find that here. Not everyone is against you brother. Keep appealing and take it easy. This is no joke. We mean this. Oh, and to the little phony “rip” comments..oh please,…as if any of you care..most of you are criminals as well in one way or another. Remember, the rest of you are NO better!!!
