One of the two men accused of killing 22-year-old Allyzibeth Lamont went before a judge Wednesday morning.    

Georgios Kakavelos, 51, filed a bail application, but the Saratoga County judge denied it Wednesday morning.


He and 34-year-old James Duffy have both pleaded not guilty.

Kakavelos owns a Johnstown diner where Lamont worked.

Duffy was a manager.

Lamont went missing after her shift in late October. Her body was found a few days later in Malta in a shallow grave that was covered in cement, stone blocks, dirt, mud, and tree limbs.

Police say she died of blunt force trauma to the head
