NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities in New York City have arrested two suspects who they say robbed, kidnapped and killed a man last year.

Officials say two Bronx men, ages 37 and 39, robbed 36-year-old Robert Bishun, of Garnerville in Rockland County, at gunpoint while he was in his Bronx auto body shop in September. Police say the pair then kidnapped Bishun and drove off with him in his own car.

Authorities say the suspects left Bishun in his car where he was later found dead and bound with zip ties. Police say he died of strangulation.

The suspects face several charges including robbery, conspiracy and kidnapping resulting in death.

Bishun was involved as a witness in a federal drug and weapons case but died two weeks before the start of the trial.
