Two Bronx men have been convicted of kidnapping and murdering a Rockland County man who was cooperating as a federal witness.

Prosecutors say Robert Pizarro, 38, and Juan Rivera, 41, attempted to rob Garnerville's Robert Bishun at his Bronx auto body shop.

They say the suspects kidnapped Bishun when they learned he was working with authorities, strangled him, and abandoned his body in a vehicle on the side of the road.

Both suspects are facing life in prison.
