Jurors on Thursday found Alishia Noel-Murray, 29, guilty of murder, attempted murder and weapon possession in the Feb. 23, 2013 assassination of her husband Omar Murray.
“She’s a real monster,” Murray’s mother, Eunice Ashley Henry, 59, said after the verdict.
Henry clapped her hands in prayer and looked up. “I’m ecstatic. I’m overwhelmed,” she said. “But I’m still missing my son.”
Noel-Murray plotted with her lover, Dameon Lovell, to hire a hitman for $3,500 to kill Murray so she could collect on three life insurance policies.
Lovell cooperated with prosecutors in exchange for 15 years to life in prison.
The alleged shooter, Kirk Portious, murdered Murray in their Lott Ave. home in Brownsville.
Moments later, Noel-Murray called 911 while holding their 10-month-old son. She “seemed calm”, a responding detective testified during the trial in Brooklyn Supreme Court.
Noel-Murray denied involvement in the slaying when she took the stand.
The jury has not yet returned a verdict for Portious who is going through a separate jury trial.
The victim’s mother, a home health aide originally from Jamaica, referred to her daughter-in-law as “the devil.”
“She tried so many times to kill my son,” Henry said.
Noel-Murray will be sentenced June 29.
