Indictments Issued in 2015 Fatal Leesburg Stabbing

A year after James R. Sealey was fatally stabbed in a 7-Eleven parking lot, a Loudoun County grand jury has indicted a suspect in the case.

Anthony Bryant Jr., 23, of Springfield, is charged with voluntary manslaughter in the March 28, 2015, stabbing of the 22-year-old Montclair, NJ man. Bryant was identified as one of several subjects involved in an early morning altercation in the parking lot of the convenience store at 22 Plaza Street NE.

Leesburg Police officers were called to the scene just before 3 a.m. and found Sealey in the back seat of a vehicle suffering from a stab wound to his upper leg area. He was transported by ambulance to the Inova Loudoun Hospital and then flown to Inova Fairfax Hospital where he died.

Based on evidence provided by investigators, a Loudoun County grand jury last week handed up indictments for voluntary manslaughter, aggravated malicious wounding, and stabbing during the commission of a felony. Bryant was located and arrested today in Fairfax. He is being held without bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.
