US alleges 3rd slay plot in NY hotel heir case
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — Federal prosecutors are alleging a third murder plot in connection with the killing of a Florida millionaire in a suburban New York hotel.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Elliott Jacobson said Monday that the government had learned of a plan to kill a witness. He did not elaborate.
The prosecutor was arguing against bail during the arraignment of the victim’s widow, 53-year-old Narcy Novack of Fort Lauderdale.
Novack has been accused of orchestrating the killing of her husband, Ben Novack Jr., at the Hilton in Rye Brook, N.Y., in July 2009. She pleaded not guilty.
She has also been accused but not charged in the slaying of her 86-year-old mother-in-law in April 2009 in Fort Lauderdale.
The judge denied Novack’s bail request.
