Death penalty not on table for two Sweetie Pie's suspects
James Timothy Norman
Terica Ellis
The slain man’s uncle, James Timothy Norman, of Jackson, Miss., and alleged co-conspirator Terica Ellis, of Memphis, Tenn., have been charged with murder for hire for their alleged role in a scheme that led to the shooting death of Andre Montgomery, 20, near Fairground Park.

Prosecutors told the court in a filing that they would not seek the death penalty against Norman or Ellis.A death penalty review process, which is triggered automatically when a federal crime is punishable by death, is still pending for another alleged co-conspirator, Travell Anthony Hill, 29, who is also charged with conspiracy to commit murder for hire in the case.

Andre Montgomery
Norman, who is a son of Sweetie Pie’s owner Robbie Montgomery, and the victim, who was her grandson, appeared on “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s,” which ran for five seasons on the Oprah Winfrey Network starting in 2011.
