Millionaire’s Wife given Life Sentence for his Murder

Narcy Novack was sentenced to life imprisonment in a New York Federal Court in what the judge claimed was one of the most sadistic crimes in the history of the U.S.

According to the Miami Herald, Novack was convicted of hiring the hit men responsible for murdering her 53 year old husband Ben Novacak and his mother Bernice, 86; Narcy Novack’s brother Cristobal Veliz was also sentenced to life imprisonment for assisting his sister in hiring the criminals responsible for the murders.

Ben and Bernice Novack were beaten to death within months of each other in 2009; Bernice was beaten with a plumbers wrench and Ben with a dumbbell as his wife looked on and offered assistance.

Judge Kenneth Karas called it “her final act of cowardice.”

“Because of Ms. Novack’s greed and her selfishness and what she thought was her ability to manipulate other people, there are two innocent people – her husband and her mother in law – who are dead,” the judge said.

The judge said he could find no mitigating factors in Novack’s life, reports ABC News.

“There’s really nothing to explain what she did,” he said. “She lived a life of privilege.”

Assistant U.S. Attorney Elliott Jacobson said Novack and her brother are “pathological liars … extraordinarily dangerous psychopaths.”

“The only sentence that would ensure the safety of the law-abiding community is a sentence that assures these two defendants will spend the rest of their lives in jail,” he told the judge.

Ben Novack, 53, was the son of the man who built the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach, a celebrity hangout in the 1950s and ’60s that appeared in the movies “Scarface” and “Goldfinger.”

The Novack family are worth millions of dollars after Ben Novack’s father built the Fountainbleau Hotel in Miami Beach; the motive given by prosecutors for the murders was the fear Ben was about to divorce Narcy and enforce a pre nuptual agreement leaving her with none of his million dollar fortune. The hit men assisted prosecutors in identifying Narcy Novack and Cristobal Veliz.
