Sentences Expected in Nadell Murder Case

The two woman charged in the death of Congers resident Peggy Nadell will be seen in court today, to receive their sentences. In 2014 80-year old Nadell was stabbed multiple times in her home and police discovered her 51-year old daughter-in-law, Florida native Diana Nadell, and 26-year old Andrea Benson of Washington DC, were responsible. Benson had testified in the case that she was paid $10,000 and the two women tricked the older woman into letting them into her house early in the morning on January 25, choking, beating, and stabbing her until she was dead. Nadell was apparently attempting to gain access to her mother-in-law’s $4 million estate and was charged with first-degree murder, for which she could receive 23-years to life in prison, and the same sentence for attempting to have two witnesses killed while she was being held in jail. Benson was charged with second-degree murder and faces 20-years to life in prison.
