    Death penalty still a question in Novack murders

    The murder trial for the Fontainebleau heiress accused of killing her husband and mother-in-law will again be delayed as the U.S. Department of Justice considers wether Narcy Novack and her brother should face the death penalty.

    Judge to Narcy Novack: You can’t use jewels to hire another lawyer

    U.S. Judge Kenneth Kara said taxpayers are already paying for her defense after she claimed to be broke, according to a report on lohud.com.

    “Let me use my wedding band to defend myself. My accusers are getting paid. Why [can’t I] use my own stuff to pay for a lawyer?” she said at the pre-trial hearing in White Plains, N.Y. “I need to use assets to defend myself. I need more than what I have.”

    The judge’s response: “No.”

    The next hearing is scheduled for March 9.

    Sex, limbs and duct tape: the marriage of Ben and Narcy Novack

    Hoping to establish multiple motives for the murder of Ben Novack, allegedly by his wife, the feds plan to give jurors a lurid portrait of their marital life.

    If a court brief filed by federal prosecutors is even partly true, Ben and Narcy Novack had a profoundly dysfunctional marriage — and a life of sex, limbs and duct tape would have made a South Beach madam blush.

    Narcy, who faces trial next month in her hotel tycoon husband’s slaying, told the FBI and others that her husband was a pedophile who would give artificial limbs free to amputees in return for sex; that he arranged sham marriages as part of an immigration scam involving his exotic dancer mistress, and that he encouraged his wife to duct-tape him and abuse him during sex.

    The court papers released this week contend that Narcy reported some of the behavior to police, the FBI and family members in the years before Ben’s murder.

    A Florida woman accused of arranging her millionaire husband's killing took the witness stand Friday in an orange prison jumpsuit and insisted that her statements to police over three days of questioning were involuntary.

    The surprise testimony of Narcy Novack, 54, of Fort Lauderdale, came during a federal court hearing about what evidence will be allowed at her trial next month.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Wife's remarks OK'd for use in NY hotel heir case

    http://www.centurylink.net/news/read...&cps=0&lang=en

    WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — A federal judge ruled Friday that a Florida woman's "chatty" statements to police after the killing of her millionaire husband were voluntary and can be used as evidence at her murder trial.

    Some of the statements by Narcy Novack, of Fort Lauderdale, will be admissible only if she takes the witness stand, the judge said.

    Trial starting for Narcy Novack in deaths of husband, mother-in-law

    5:38 a.m. EDT, April 23, 2012

    A federal prosecutor will allege to the jury that Novack, of Fort Lauderdale, engineered a plot meant to guarantee she would inherit the $10 million estate of her husband, Ben Novack Jr., son of the man who built the storied Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach. She's accused of letting the killers into the room and ordering them to cut out her husband's eyes, which were sliced with knives.

    Novack trial opening: ‘They wanted him to suffer’

    Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/04/2...#storylink=cpy

    WHITE PLAINS, NY -- The murder-for-hire scheme to kill Fontainebleau hotel heirs Ben and Bernice Novack involved a drug addict, a hot dog vendor, a bus driver and a scorned woman.

    Together, prosecutors say they formed a cast of “monsters” who hatched a plot more savage than a slasher flick.

    Narcy Novack, 56, and her brother, Cristobal Veliz, 58, appeared in federal court Monday, on the first day of testimony in the long-awaited, sensational trial in the murder-for-hire killing of Novack’s millionaire husband, Ben Novack, Jr. The brother and sister are charged with first-degree murder, racketeering and a litany of other felonies that could put them behind bars for life.
    -------

    But defense attorneys say Narcy Novack and Veliz were framed by Narcy Novack’s daughter, who hired the killers because she wanted Ben Novack’s fortune for herself.

    Narcy Novack allegedly threatened husband’s mistress: ‘If I can’t have him, no one will’

    Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/04/2...#storylink=cpy

    WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- She called herself “Mona Love,” and she was a prostitute, tattoo artist, adult porn star, stripper and Ben Novack’s other woman.

    Love, whose real name is Rebecca A.. Starr Bliss, testified Tuesday that Novack paid her $600 for sex after the two met on a website for johns and prostitutes. The Fort Lauderdale millionaire, who had a love of strippers and prostitutes, was immediately smitten.

    He sent Bliss on a $4,000 spa escape, set her up in Fort Lauderdale condo and bought her a cell phone, $10,000 in furniture, $10,000 worth of music equipment and a little toy poodle.

    Bliss promised to stop doing tricks, and Novack promised to divorce his wife.
