Son of ‘Sweetie Pie’s’ Owner Charged in Murder-for-Hire Plot Against Nephew

James Timothy “Tim” Norman, the son of Missouri-based restauranteur Robbie Montgomery who regularly appeared on OWN’s “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” series, was charged Tuesday with conspiracy to use interstate commerce facilities in the commission of a murder-for-hire, resulting in 2016 death of his nephew.

Norman, 41, who was in line to take over his mother’s businesses that included restaurants in other states, allegedly obtained a $450,000 life insurance policy on his 18-year-old nephew Andre Montgomery in 2014, making made himself the sole beneficiary, according to the criminal complaint, the New York Daily News reported.

In March 2016, Norman allegedly conspired with Terica Ellis, an exotic dancer, to kill Andre Montgomery. Prosecutors said that on the day of the shooting, the youth allegedly texted Ellis his address, at which point Ellis then called Norman “for the purpose of sharing Montgomery’s location,” the Daily News reported.

A week after Montgomery’s death, Norman attempted to collect on the insurance policies, but was denied because he failed to produce the required documents.

Norman is being held without bond at the Madison County Detention Center in Mississippi.

Norman’s mother was a backup singer for the Ike and Tina Turner Review. After leaving the entertainment world, she started a buffet-style restaurant in St. Louis that was followed by several other award-winning Sweetie Pie’s eateries.

“Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” premiered on OWN in 2011.
