“Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” star and producer James Timothy Norman is going back to the big house.
On Tuesday the 41-year-old reality star was arrested on federal charges stemming from the 2016 killing of his 18-year-old nephew, Andre Montgomery. According to WAPT Norman was charged with conspiracy to use a cellphone in the commission of a murder-for-hire, resulting in death.
An affidavit filed Aug. 11 states Norman conspired with an exotic dancer named Terica Ellis, of Memphis, Tennessee, using prepaid cellphones to coordinate the murder of Montgomery, on March 14, 2016, in St. Louis, Missouri. Ellis also faces one count of conspiracy, according to the complaint.
The affidavit also states Norman attempted to obtain a life insurance policy for Montgomery in the amount of $250,000 in October 2014, but the policy was not issued. Another policy totaling $450,000 was issued by a separate insurance company two weeks later, and Norman was named as the sole beneficiary.
In a 2016 episode of the OWN series, Norman and his mother Miss Robbie expressed their sadness over Montgomery’s death as they walked down the street where he was gunned down.
This unfortunately is not Norman’s first time in trouble with the law. He spent 10 and a half years behind bars for armed robbery. In 2018, he was charged for misdemeanor assault charges in Harris County, Texas, after allegedly punching a former employee in the face. In 2019, a Houston-based property company sued Norman for unpaid rent totaling over $254,000.
At this time the family has not released a statement. We’ll keep you posted as this story develops.
