A federal prosecutor says a jury has convicted two New York City men on multiple charges after they hijacked an 18-wheeler at a Virginia truck stop.
Jessica D. Aber, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, says 30-year-old Stephen Pierre Paul and 26-year-old Wayne Ricardo Taylor were convicted of carjacking, armed robbery and possession of a firearm in relation to a crime of violence.
The verdict was returned last week and announced on Monday.
Pierre-Paul and Taylor each face up to life in prison when they are sentenced in March.
