The Ohio Attorney General's Office has announced its decision to appeal Federal Judge James Carr's decision to grant Quisi Bryan a new trial.

Bryan was convicted of killing Cleveland Police Officer Wayne Leon in a 2000 traffic stop. 

The new trial stems from reported "racial disparity" in the panel of jurors who convicted him.

Bryan is on death row for Leon's murder, plus 47 years for other crimes, including sexual assaults.
