Man sentenced in connection with Sweetie Pie’s murder plot

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A former St. Louis insurance agent was sentenced Monday to three years in prison for helping a former reality TV star fraudulently buy life insurance for a relative who was later shot in a murder conspiracy .

Waiel Rebhi Yaghnam, 44, pleaded guilty in July and admitted conspiring with James Norman over politics towards Norman’s nephew Andre Montgomery Jr.

Norman and Montgomery both appeared in OWN TV’s “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s,” a reality show set in a restaurant founded by Montgomery’s grandmother. It ran for five seasons starting in 2011.

21-year-old Montgomery was killed in 2016 by Travell Anthony Hill, who said he was hired by Norman. Hill pleaded guilty in June for conspiracy to commit assassination and was sentenced to 32 years in prison.

Norman, 43, was sentenced in September for murder and fraud. Judgment is in March.

The policy included a $200,000 accidental death driver that would be paid if Montgomery died of anything other than natural causes, and a $50,000 temporary driver that would pay if Montgomery died within 10 years died years after the policy was issued.
