    Narcy Novack, who is accused of arranging the killings of her husband and mother-in-law.

    The prosecutor, Elliott B. Jacobson, said in court that the Justice Department had directed him not to seek the execution of the woman, Narcy Novack, 54, of Fort Lauderdale, or her brother, Cristobal Veliz, 57, of Brooklyn, who is also implicated in the case.
    They are accused of hiring people who killed Ms. Novack’s mother-in-law, Bernice Novack, in her Florida home and Ms. Novack’s husband, Ben, in his hotel room in New York. Mr. Novack’s father built the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach. He and his mother were beaten to death in 2009 in what the government says was Narcy Novack’s attempt to acquire the family’s multimillion-dollar estate.
