A Saratoga County jury rejected Georgios Kakavelos’s story that he walked in just after James Duffy killed Allyzibeth Lamont.

Lamont was just 22 and an employee at the sub shop operated by Kakavelos. The jury found him guilty of murder in the first-degree under the theory that he paid another worker at the shop, James Duffy, to help him kill Lamont and bury her body off Exit 13 of the Northway in Malta.

Kakavelos took the stand in his own defense and claimed he was an innocent bystander, walking in just after Duffy killed her with a baseball bat, and Duffy threatening to kill him too if he told anyone.

The jury found him guilty of all counts, including conspiracy, concealment of a corpse, and the top charge murder in the first-degree.
