While authorities have not yet said how they connected Bryant to Shirley’s murder, the suspect is being held without bond.

Court documents state that Bryant was convicted in Florida for a 2009 attempted murder case. Three years after that, he was convicted in Harris County for a count of felon in possession of a weapon.
