HARTSVILLE, SC (WMBF) – A Hartsville man was sentenced to 40 years in prison for the 2012 murder of woman who was stabbed to death.

Brannon Bryant was found guilty of murder and use of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime Thursday, after the jury deliberated for about two and a half hours, according to the Darlington County Clerk of Court. He was sentenced to 40 years for murder, and 5 years for possession of a weapon, to be served concurrently.

Hartsville police arrested Bryant for the stabbing of Shannon Patrice Thomas that happened in June of 2012. He was charged with murder and the use of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, according to officials.

The police got a call around 5:00 a.m. and responded to 305 South 8thStreet. Thomas, who was 25 at the time of the stabbing, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Darlington County Coroner Todd Hardee.

Police found Thomas stabbed to death upon their arrival, after receiving a 911 call, according to Public Information Officer, Donald Quist.

"We are thankful to the community for helping us make an arrest in this case," said Hartsville Police Chief James Hudson. "The citizens were very helpful."
