Suzanne DeLyon, 65, of McLean, and Byoung Kyung Kim, 53, of Centreville, were convicted Thursday by a federal jury on one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and six counts of wire fraud, according to a news release from the FBI.

DeLyon and Kim face a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison when they are sentenced on Oct. 3.

DeLyon and Kim were indicted on Jan. 30 by a federal grand jury. According to court records and evidence at trial, DeLyon and Kim were partners in an international grocery store, Expo Emart, in the Falls Church area, that was destroyed by a fire on Jan. 16, 2009. 

In the course of claiming insurance reimbursements from Travelers Insurance, DeLyon and Kim conspired to falsify payroll documents and records, and they made false representations to Travelers to get over $100,000 more than what they were legally owed.

This case was investigated by the FBI’s Washington Field Office and IRS-CI. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Maya D. Song and Gene Rossi and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Alison L. Anderson are prosecuting the case.
