Lowery sentencing postponed

Convicted Linda Stein murderer Natavia Lowery saw her sentencing hearing postponed today, after her stepfather was reportedly dragged from the court while protesting the judge’s denial of a change of counsel for Lowery. The former assistant to the late super broker Stein has tried to change council numerous times throughout her trial, to no avail. When the possibility was once again brought before the judge today, Justice Richard Carruthers denied the request — and blasted Lowery’s proposed replacement, attorney Paul Brenner, for derisive comments he made about the current defense team. The resulting melee led to a misdemeanor contempt of court charge for Lowery’s stepfather and a sentencing delay for Lowery till April 26. Lowery was convicted in February on charges that she killed her boss, a former Prudential Douglas Elliman agent, in her Upper East Side apartment.
