NORFOLK -- A federal jury has convicted two men charged in the murder-for-hire of a sailor.

Michael Draven, of Newport News, and David Runyon, of Morgantown, W.Va., were convicted today of murder, conspiracy to commit murder for hire and carjacking. They were acquitted of a robbery charge.

Prosecutors say Draven and Catherina Voss, of Newport News, hired Runyon to kill her husband, 30-year-old Navy ensign Cory Voss. Voss was shot while sitting in his pickup outside an ATM in Newport News in April 2007.

Runyon is accused of being the triggerman and could face the federal death penalty, which the jury will determine at a later date.

Catherina Voss has pleaded guilty to arranging the slaying and is serving life in prison. -- The Associated Press
