BALLSTON SPA — One of two men accused of killing Allyzibeth LaMont and burying her body in October was denied bail at a court appearance this morning.

Georgios Kakavelos, 51, appeared in Saratoga County Court in front of Judge James Murphy III.

Although, Kakavelous has surrendered both of his passports — since he has a duel citizenship in the United States and Greece — Murphy determined there to be an “extreme risk for flight,” as Kakavelos is facing murder charges in which if found convicted he could face 25 years to life in prison.

Co-defendant James Duffy is expected to appear in court later today at 1:30 p.m. He also faces murder charges.

The Leader-Herald will have more on both cases in Thursday’s print and online editions.
