*It’s not exactly a secret that “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” star Miss Robbie Montgomery and her son/partner James Timothy “Tim” Norman had a huge falling out several years ago and they’ve been estranged ever since.
And to make the situation even worse between them now comes word that Norman been arrested for an alleged murder-for-hire plot involving his nephew Andre Montgomery, and Miss Robbie’s grandson.
Yes, it’s shocking, but you read that correctly. James Timothy Norman was busted by feds for his alleged role in the 2016 shooting death of Andre Montgomery … his nephew and his mother’s (Miss Robbie) grandchild.
Here’s more via TMZ:
According to docs, prosecutors say Norman — who owns Sweetie Pie’s restaurant — took out a $450k life insurance policy on his nephew back in 2014 … and then worked with a Memphis-based woman named Terica Ellis to allegedly pull off the murder. The feds claim they communicated on burner phones in the days leading up to the killing in St. Louis.
In docs, obtained by TMZ, prosecutors claim Ellis got Andre’s location the day of the murder … then placed a call to Norman. Shortly after that, on March 14, 2016 … Montgomery was shot at killed, and the feds claim they ping’d Ellis’ phone near the scene of the crime.
Immediately after Montgomery’s murder … Ellis allegedly called Norman, left town and deposited $9k in cash into various bank accounts. Prosecutors say Norman then contacted the life insurance company in an attempt to collect on the policy.
By the way, Terica Ellis, an exotic dancer, is facing the same murder-for-hire conspiracy charge as Norman.
Wait! There’s this. Miss Robbie, who founded the restaurant which led to the former OWN TV series, always believed her grandson’s murder was a setup, but we bet this is a huge shock to her.
And lastly. After what he’s been accused of, WHY in the hell is Tim Norman SMILING in that mug shot?
