Two Armenian young men have been convicted of murder in connection with a killing of 19-year-old Armenian Mike Yepremyan.

Zareh Manjikian and Vahagn Jurian, both 25, were found guilty Friday of first-degree murder and conspiracy, Glendale News-Press reported.

Two other defendants in the case, Hovik Dzhuryan, 20, and Khatun Vardanian, 23, were convicted of conspiracy for their role in the incident.

Mike Yepremyan was murdered in November 2009 after a scuffle in a North Hollywood parking lot. The Los Angeles Police Department was investigating the case.
