NOXUBEE COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — A Noxubee County man will continue serving a life sentence for murder.

The state Court of Appeals today denied 34-year-old Dareous Bryant’s appeal of his conviction two years ago.

The court ruled the jury had enough evidence to convict him and that that there was no evidence of jury tampering.

Bryant was sentenced to life in the shooting death of Lamarco Tate during a fight in May 2009 outside the Bee Hive Club in Shuqualak.
