Stein Murder Suspect 'Left Voicemail Cover Up'

The woman accused of murdering THE RAMONES manager LINDA STEIN allegedly attempted to cover up her actions by leaving a voicemail message for her boss hours after the crime, a court has heard.
Punk rock pioneer and celebrity real estate broker Stein was found bludgeoned to death in her New York apartment on 30 October, 2007.
Her personal assistant, Natavia Lowery, has been charged with the 62 year old's murder and is currently on trial in Manhattan.
The case continued on Tuesday (03Feb10) when prosecutors played a recorded message Lowery had left on Stein's cell phone in an alleged bid to steer any suspicions about the music manager's death away from her, reports the New York Post.
In the message, Lowery says, "Hi Linda! It's Natavia. I just want to let you know I am leaving work at 5.30. I hope that the showing goes well and I will see you tomorrow. See you later!"
The 28 year old is accused of stealing her boss' cellphone moments after the murder, before placing it back in Stein's purse and leaving the bag outside the star's apartment.
Prosecutors also told the court how an online bank transfer of $150,000 (£93,750) had been made from Stein's savings account at 2.04pm on the day she died - Stein is believed to have been killed between 12.15pm and 1pm.
Earlier in the trial, security footage appearing to show Lowery in Stein's apartment building was played to the jury. The video allegedly shows the suspect leaving the apartment with her boss' handbag over her shoulder and another bag - thought to contain the murder weapon - in her other hand.
Lowery has pleaded not guilty to the charge. If convicted, she faces between 25 years to life behind bars.
The trial continues.
