The gunman hired to take the life of reality TV star Andre Montgomery Jr. pleaded guilty June 3 in a Federal courtroom in St. Louis.
Travell Anthony Hill, 30, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder-for-hire in exchange for $5,000.
In his plea deal, Hill said the victim’s uncle, James Norman, hired him to kill the victim. He also said Norman hired Terica Ellis, a former girlfriend, to lure the victim to the place where he was shot.
Norman and Ellis are scheduled to go on trial in September on conspiracy to commit murder charges.
Norman is also accused of trying to cash $450,000 in life insurance policies he took out on his nephew.
He and his insurance agent, Waiel Rebhi Yaghnam, are charged with wire and mail fraud, and Yaghnam is also charged with aggravated identity theft.
Inglewood residents will remember when a Sweetie Pie’s opened in the City and closed less than a year later. Apparently customers weren’t fond of the sugar being a key ingredient in most of the menu items.
