Nadell Pleads Not Guilty in Killing

Diana Nadell, the woman accused of killing her mother-in-law, 80-year old Peggy Nadell of Valley Cottage, pleaded not guilty in court on Wednesday. Police believe that 50-year old Nadell and three other women, who have already pleaded guilty, planned the murder of the older woman to gain access to her $4 million estate. Last week Nadell was indicted by a grand jury on charges of first-degree murder and has been held at Rikers Island in New York City. On Wednesday the facility had technical trouble which led to a delay in the court case, once it started Justice William Kelly set her bail at $5 million and ordered that attorneys to find a closer prison where the defendant can be held. The evidence provided at the court hearing includes video statements from Nadell, recordings of wiretaps, and coconspirator Andrea Benson’s statements against Nadell. Nadell is to appear back in court on July 30. Prosecutors stated they will be seeking life without parole.
