Court for Fla. woman charged in husband's NY death

Legal Business Posted on

Federal prosecutors have been turning up the heat on a Florida woman accused of arranging the 2009 killings of her millionaire husband and mother-in-law.

Narcy Novack of Fort Lauderdale and her brother, Cristobal Veliz of Brooklyn, N.Y., are due in court Friday morning for a status conference.

Novack and Veliz are accused of hiring others to kill Ben Novack in his New York hotel room and Bernice Novack in her Florida home.

Last month, the government added the mother-in-law's killing to the charges against Novack and Veliz. And a prosecutor said another charge — which carries the possibility of the death penalty — may be in store.

Defense attorneys suggested the prosecution was trying to force a guilty plea.

Ben Novack's father built the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach, Fla.
