A government jury on Friday sentenced a previous star of the St. Louis-based unscripted television show "Welcome to Darling's" of organizing the shooting passing of his nephew.
The jury pondered around 17 hours more than three days prior to arriving at its decision in the homicide for-employ body of evidence against James.
He was accused of trick to carry out murder-for-employ, murder-for-recruit and connivance to commit mail and wire extortion.
Norman and his nephew, Andre Montgomery, both featured in the long-running OWN unscripted TV drama about a well known southern fare business.
Examiners are not looking for capital punishment but rather Norman could be condemned to up to life in jail. Condemning is set for Dec. 15.
Protection lawyer Michael Leonard said after the decision that he and Norman were "very astounded and frustrated in the result" of the case.
