A Saratoga County man convicted of murder will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Georgios Kakavelos killed Allyzibeth Lamont with a baseball bat and a sledgehammer on the night of October 28, 2019.

A jury found Kakavelos guilty of all counts including murder in the first degree, conspiracy and concealing a corpse for working with and paying, his co-defendant, James Duffy, to bury her body in a shallow grave in the woods near the southbound Exit 13 ramp of the Northway.

At his sentencing on Tuesday, Ally Lamont's family told the court what they think of him.

"I and her father will always be forever devastated and enraged by the fact that when our daughter was fighting for her life and took her last breath, you were with her," said Christina Lamont, Allyzibeth's mother. "You're a failure as a businessman, you're a failure as a human being, and you failed to get rid of our daughter, 'cause she's with our family, our friends, and everyone who knew her."

Lamont's sister, Brooke, called her a light for everyone who knew her. 

"We will forever never be the same, we grieve the loss of Ally every single day, for now and forever," she said. 

Kakavelos' sentencing had been postponed after he requested a public defender, saying he no longer wanted his attorney, Kevin O'Brien, to represent him.

Duffy was sentenced to 18 years to life last July.
