WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — A woman from Florida has been sentenced to life in prison in the killings of her millionaire husband and mother-in-law.

Narcy Novack of Fort Lauderdale was not in the White Plains, N.Y., courtroom to hear the sentence on Monday. She waived her right to appear, just as she did when the verdict was delivered in June.

Her brother and co-defendant, Cristobal Veliz of Brooklyn, was also sentenced to life in prison in federal court in White Plains.

They were convicted of hiring hit men to carry out the 2009 beating deaths of Ben Novack Jr. in New York and Bernice Novack in Florida. Ben Novack was the son of the man who built the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach.
