WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - A federal prosecutor says he'll decide within a few weeks whether to file additional charges against a Florida woman already accused of having her husband killed.

The prosecutor did not specify what new charges might be lodged against 53-year-old Narcy Novack of Fort Lauderdale. But he alleged last summer that she plotted the beating death of her mother-in-law.

Novack and three codefendants are charged in the killing of Ben Novack Jr., son of the builder of the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach. He was beaten to death in 2009 at the Hilton hotel in the New York City suburb of Rye Brook.

One of the defendants, Joel Gonzalez, was missing from Thursday's court session. The U.S. attorney's office would not comment on whether he was cooperating.
