A man will likely spend 18 years to life in prison after pleading guilty to his role in a Gloversville woman's murder.

As NewsChannel 13 reported Friday night, James Duffy admitted his role in the 2019 beating death of Allyzibeth Lamont, but pleaded to a reduced charge of murder in the second degree to avoid the possibility of life in prison.  

Duffy and Georgios Kakavelos, his former boss at a sub shop in Johnstown, were both charged with murder in the first degree, accusing them of carrying out a murder-for-hire plan to kill Lamont, who worked at the sub shop.

Duffy will be sentenced to 18 years to life in prison if he cooperates in the prosecution of Kakavelos, who will be tried beginning May 10 and faces a maximum sentence of up to life in prison.
