A Toledo man sentenced to 15 years to life in prison for murder has lost an appeal.

Jerron Bryant, 21, requested the 6th District Court of Appeals that he be allowed to file a delayed appeal. A defendant has 30 days after being sentenced to file an appeal.

Bryant was sentenced in April to an indefinite prison term of 15 years to life for murder charge with one year mandatory for a firearm specification.

Per court documents, a motion to appeal needs to include the reasons for the appeal and the appellant is required to file a notice of appeal with the trial court clerk and to the court of appeals clerk.

The higher court in October denied the request, stating Bryant had failed to indicate which judgement he sought to appeal and file the necessary paperwork.

He was found guilty of shooting and killing a man in a Northwood hotel on Feb. 5, 2021.

Northwood police responded to a shots-fired call at the Bridgepointe Inn & Suites, 2600 Lauren Lane. Officers found Eddie Lee Phillips II, 37, dead.

Court papers state Bryant killed Phillips and that he did so while committing felonious assault.

Bryant was arrested Feb. 11, 2021, by Northwood Police Department officers with the assistance of Toledo police.

He remains in the North Central Correctional Complex in Marion.
