Greek-American Charged with Killing Woman in New York

November 6, 2019

MALTA, NY (AP) — Two men have been charged with killing a young woman who worked with them at an upstate New York deli and leaving her body in a shallow grave.

State police say 51-year-old Georgios Kakavelos of Ballston Spa in Saratoga County and 34-year-old James Duffy of Johnstown in Fulton County are charged with killing Allyzibeth Lamont. The 22-year-old woman vanished Monday evening after her shift at Local No. 9 deli in Johnstown.

Troopers say searchers using drones and a dog found her body in a marsh Thursday in the Saratoga County town of Malta, 30 miles east of Johnstown.

An autopsy found she died of multiple blows to the head. A possible motive was not disclosed.

The men were arraigned and sent to Saratoga County jail. It could not be determined if they have lawyers to comment.
