Norman was the sole beneficiary of a $450,000 life insurance policy taken out against his nephew’s life and paid Ellis about $10,000 for her role in the plot.
She testified she thought Norman wanted to confront his nephew about a burglary and didn't know he hired Hill to shoot Montgomery.
Norman was convicted in September of conspiracy to commit murder-for-hire, among other charges. He is scheduled to be sentenced in March.
Hill pleaded guilty and was sentenced in October to 32 years in prison on two murder-for-hire charges.
