Two men were convicted Friday for the murder of a Portsmouth pawn shop worker.

Today, a federal jury convicted Kevin Stevens, Jr. and Xavier Holley with the murder of Robert Nelson.

The men are two of the five people who robbed the Gold Shop in October of 2010.

Nelson was watching the store for a friend when he was shot to death.

Stevens and Holley face a maximum sentence of life in prison.
