Tim Norman Charged in Insurance Money Murder

Tim Norman from Welcome to Sweetie Pies accused of having his nephew murdered for insurance money....

James Timothy Norman owner of Sweetie Pie’s restaurant has been arrested on federal charges and is currently being held in the Madison County Detention Center.
Norman was charged with conspiracy to use interstate commerce facilities (a cellphone) in the commission of a murder-for-hire, resulting in death.
According to the complaint, Norman, Terica Ellis and others conspired to commit a murder-for-hire in exchange for money.
Federal authorities allege that in 2014, Norman obtained a $450,000 life insurance policy on his 18-year-old nephew, Andre Montgomery. Norman was the sole beneficiary.
In the days leading up to Montgomery’s murder, Ellis told Montgomery that she was coming to St. Louis. On March 13, 2016, the day before Montgomery’s murder, Norman flew to St. Louis, Missouri from his home in Los Angeles, California.
On March 14, 2016, Ellis and Norman communicated using temporary phones activated that day. Ellis also used the temporary phone to communicate with Montgomery and learn his location. Immediately after learning Montgomery’s location, Ellis placed a call to Norman.
Around 8:00 p.m. that same day, Montgomery was shot and killed. Ellis’s phone location information places her in the area of the murder at time of the shooting.
