Woman fatally stabbed in the neck

The man accused of fatally stabbing a Southeast D.C. mother of two in May 2015 was convicted Monday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced.

Jurors convicted Delonte Wynn, 36, of Southeast D.C. of first-degree premeditated murder while armed in the death of Darlene Bryant, 46.

Wynn was arrested for the crime in June 2015 after he stabbed Bryant in the neck inside a building on the 4300 block of Wheeler Road SE. Bryant collapsed and died on a neighbor’s front steps.

Bryant struggled with drug addiction, her mother, Dolores Bryant, told News4 in July 2015.

Sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 11. Wynn could face jail time ranging from 30 years to a life sentence, according to D.C. law

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article mistakenly said Wynn pleaded guilty and was convicted. The article has been updated to reflect that he did not plead guilty.
