— "They were not ethical and they did not show respect."

Bowdish said he will travel to the graves of the late Bethlehem Police Detectives Anthony Arduini and John Cox this weekend to honor their hard work and efforts when they alive on this exhaustive 22-month investigation.

Porco will be sentenced on Wednesday, Oct. 25. He could face a total of 50 years to life in prison on both second-degree murder and attempted murder counts.

Prisoner Christopher Porco left the courthouse just after 7 p.m. through a side door in yellow Albany County inmate clothes. He sat in the backseat of a county sheriff's car with Sheriff James Campbell riding in the front seat. His yellow Jeep Wrangler that was seen by two different toll collectors on the night of the murder was parked alone in the middle of the back lot at the Orange County courthouse late Thursday night.

Joan Porco, at the same time, was seen inside the lobby of the Comfort Inn Hotel in Goshen on the phone as other friends and family members sat nearby.

It was not clear when Christopher's brother Johnathan Porco received word of the verdict. He serves in the Navy and is inside a nuclear submarine at an undisclosed location.
