Former Sweetie Pie's star Tim Norman has been sentenced to life in federal prison for orchestrating a murder-for-hire plot against his nephew,
Andre Montgomery Jr. Norman, who gained fame through the reality TV show "Welcome to Sweetie Pie's" on the Oprah Winfrey Network, had been waiting for six months to learn his fate.
A jury spent over 17 hours deliberating before finding Norman guilty on all charges, including conspiracy to commit murder-for-hire, murder-for-hire resulting in death, and mail fraud.
The sentencing hearing took place on Thursday, where Norman received two life sentences for the murder-for-hire counts and a 240-month sentence for the mail fraud count.
The case dates back to 2016 when Montgomery was found dead in St. Louis. Court documents revealed that Norman had taken out a life insurance policy on his nephew for $450,000 in 2014 and had conspired with others to carry out the murder.
The sentencing marks the end of a long legal battle for Norman and his family.
It is a tragic reminder of the devastating impact that greed and jealousy can have on families and loved ones.
