As Spinner previously reported, in February a jury found Lowery guilty of second-degree murder for bludgeoning Stein to death on October 30, 2007. The murder took place in Stein's Manhattan apartment and a piece of exercise equipment was identified as the weapon. Following her influential stint managing the Ramones, Stein had become a real estate broker whose client list included Billy Joel, Madonna and Sting. She hired Lowery as a personal assistant but then discovered that Lowery -- whose criminal record includes identity theft and embezzlement -- had been stealing from her.
Lowery once confessed to the murder in a videotaped statement but later recanted that confession and pleaded her innocence. The Associated Press reports that Lowery's stepfather now faces a criminal contempt charge for a courtroom disturbance during the trial.
