‘Sweetie Pie’s’ Star Tim Norman Named Murder-For-Hire Mastermind, Shooter Says Tim Paid Him To Kill His Nephew

"Sweetie Pie's" star Tim Norman has been called out by the man who killed his nephew in an alleged murder-for-hire plot. The shooter admitted to killing Tim's nephew, Andre Montgomery Jr., and claims Tim hired him to do it. The latest inside...

Tim Norman has been implicated as the mastermind of the murder-for-hire plot against his nephew/former co-star, who was the grandson Robbie “Miss Robbie” Montgomery, founder of the soul food restaurant Sweetie Pies.

If you didn’t know, James Timothy Norman– star of OWN’s “Sweetie Pie’s” and son of Miss Robbie – was arrested and charged for orchestrating a murder-for-hire plot, which resulted in the death of his 21-year-old nephew, Andre Montgomery Jr.

Travell Anthony Hill (above), 30, pleaded guilty to murdering Miss Robbie’s grandson for pay while implicating others. The St. Louis man was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder-for-hire and a separate count of murder-for-hire in the killing of 21-year-old Andre Montgomery Jr.

In March 2016, Andre was shot and killed in the 3900 block of Natural Bridge Drive in the City of St. Louis. It’s reported Andre received a phone call from a woman named Terica Ellis to come outside. When he did, he was gunned down.

 

 

The 43-year-old reality star - who sentenced to 10 years in prison for armed robbery when he was a teenager - and his alleged accomplice - a 36-year-old exotic dancer from Memphis named Terica Ellis - were indicted for the offenses of conspiracy to commit murder-for-hire and murder-for-hire, resulting in death.

In Travell’s plea agreement, he admitted to shooting and killing Andre in exchange for $5,000 two days after the death. During phone calls with his brother from jail, he discussed payment from Tim. He said Tim hired him to kill his nephew because “he wanted Montgomery dead.”

In Travell’s plea, he also stated a woman, Terica Ellis, was also part of the plot and was hired by Tim to lure Andre outside and to tell him where Andre was before the shooting. Turns out, Terica was previously involved in a romantic relationship with Tim.

Both Tim and Terica will go on trial in September. Travell’s sentencing is scheduled for September, but both counts carry a mandatory life sentence in prison, U.S. District Judge John A. Ross said at the plea hearing.

In the indictment, Tim was accused of attempting to cash in on the $450,000 life insurance policy he took out on his nephew in 2014. Tim Norman obtained the life insurance policy on his nephew, where he was named the sole beneficiary. Tim didn’t even try to hide the fact he was involved, calling the insurance company two days after his nephew was murdered. What’s even more shocking and creepy is that Tim took the life insurance policy out on his nephew in 2014, which means, he could have been silently plotting to kill his nephew for two years. SICK!

Hip Hop producer/insurance agent Waiel Rebhi Yaghnam was also hit with one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. As for Waiel's involvement, he was reportedly Tim’s insurance agent, and he helped the reality star fraudulently obtain a life insurance policy on Andre. Waiel was not charged in the alleged murder-for-hire plot.

If Tim and Terica are convicted of conspiracy to commit murder-for-hire or murder-for-hire, resulting in death, the penalty is life imprisonment or death and a fine of $250,000. Federal prosecutors will not seek the death penalty in this case.

If Tim and Wailel are convicted of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, they’re facing a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.

Some fans - and apparently investigators who also think its possible - believe Tim allegedly had his nephew killed so that there wouldn’t be anyone in his way to receive an inheritance from Miss Robbie. Andre was Tim’s dead brother’s son.

Just tragic.
