Reality TV star James Timothy Norman was arrested and charged in a federal complaint in Mississippi for allegedly commissioning a murder-for-hire plot which resulted in the killing of his teenage nephew. Norman is the son of Robbie Montgomery, owner of of a soul food restaurant that was the setting for OWN’s reality TV show Welcome To Sweetie Pie’s.

There has been no comment from any of Norman’s representatives. In the federal complaint, Normal is alleged to have conspired with an exotic dancer living in Memphis, Tennessee, “to use a facility of interstate commerce, namely, a cellular telephone, to commit a murder-for-hire in exchange for United States currency.”

The exotic dancer has also been charged.

Phone calls were traced between Norman and the dancer which is how the murder occurred on March 14, 2016. Norma had taken a $450,000 life insurance policy on his nephew, Andre Montgomery, which he attempted to collect a week after his passing.
