The two were convicted of beating 73-year-old Cecil Brown at his Takoma Park home in August 2014.
McCarthy says texts between Pannell-Brown and Zadeh and some 30 hotel receipts helped prosecutors build a case against the two.
Pannell-Brown and Zadeh each face a maximum of 30 years in prison at sentencing on July 25.
