"Mrs. Fontainebleau" Bernice Novack Now Thought to Be Killed by Daughter-in-Law
After rumors of Narcy's involvement had floated for months, prosecutors officially made the charges today during a bond hearing for Narcy.
After Ben was found dead in a Hilton Rye Town hotel in Westchester County, New York, local police were sent an anonymous letter in Spanish claiming Narcy was the mastermind behind the death of both Bernice and Ben.
The men Narcy hired to kill Ben have both admitted to the crime, according to prosecutors.
The Miami Herald adds this grizzly detail:
During her husband's beating, the prosecution said, she ordered his killers to cut out his eyes with a utility knife.Bernice Novack was married to Ben Novack Sr. when he opened the now-legendary Fontainebleau in Miami Beach, and previously worked as a model in New York.
"Finish him off,'' she told them, according to the prosecution.
