The gunman who killed the nephew of former reality star James “Tim” Norman was sentenced to 32 years in prison on Thursday, Oct. 20.

Travell Anthony Hill, 31, pleaded guilty in June to conspiring with Norman to kill Andre Montgomery, 21, on March 14, 2016.

“I’ve been dead inside since the day of the murder,” Hill said in court Thursday, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “I apologize to everyone in court.”

Norman (left) was charged with masterminding the death of his nephew (right) to collect $450,000 in life insurance to pay off his IRS debt.

Hill testified that he accepted $5,000 in the murder-for-hire plot to kill Montgomery.

“How can you sleep?” Montgomery’s sister, Kalyn Griggs, asked Hill in open court on Thursday. “Was the $5,000 worth it?”

Norman, 43, was found guilty on all counts in his murder trial in September. He cried in court and told the jury he mentored many children, including his nephew.

Norman and his mom Robbie Montgomery starred in the docu-series Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s, which centered around a family-run restaurant in St. Louis, MO.

Two others, Waiel Yaghnam and former stripper Terica Ellis, pleaded guilty to their roles in the murder, according to KSDK.

Prosecutors said Norman paid Ellis $10,000 to tell Hill where Montgomery was before luring him outside.

“This plan doesn’t exist but for Tim Norman’s greed,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Angie Danis said during his trial in September, according to theGrio.

Ellis’ sentencing hearing is in January and Norman’s sentencing is in March, the Post-Dispatch reported.
