Narcy Novack back in court today
It's back to court today for the wife accused of arranging the murder of her millionaire husband at the Rye Town Hilton.
This is Narcy Novack's first appearance since new charges were handed down a few weeks ago. During the last court appearance in White Plaines, federal prosecutors said they were expanding the case against Novack to include new charges of racketeering, maiming and assault.
The former Florida stripper is accused in the brutal murder of her millionaire husband, Ben Novack Jr., while the two were staying at the Rye Town Hilton back in 2009.
According to prosecutors, Novack and her brother Christobal Veliz hired two men to murder her husband.
Investigators say Novack watched in the couple's hotel room as the hit men savagely bound and beat Ben Novack with dumbbells, then she ordered them to gouge out his eyes.
She's also charged in the death of her mother-in-law, Bernice Novack, months earlier.
If Novack is convicted on the new charges, there would be a mandatory sentence of life in prison. Last time in court, the prosecution took the death penalty off the table.
