GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Raogo Ouedraogo was found guilty Wednesday for his role in the presumed kidnapping and murder of Donald Dietz in 2007.
He was found guilty on three charges -- conspiracy to commit bank fraud, conspiracy to kidnap and kidnapping resulting in death -- but found not guilty on a charge of interstate murder-for-hire.
Ouedraogo and Rami Saba are believed to have targeted Dietz, a Saranac resident known to those in the area as The Bicycle Man, to steal $450,000 from his bank account.
Dietz, 66 at the time of his disappearance, has not been found and is presumed dead.
His brother, Marv, told 24 Hour News 8 he's "very happy" Ouedraogo was convicted.
Ouedraogo, who chose not to testify in his own behalf, faces life in prison when he is sentenced June 29.
Saba's trial is set to begin in May.
