Guilty plea in Tick Tock murder plot
CLIFTON, N.J. (AP) -- The former manager of a northern New Jersey diner has pleaded guilty in what authorities say was a foiled plot to kill the co-owner of the restaurant, who is his uncle by marriage.
Authorities have said an informant told them Spyropoulos was searching for a hitman to torture and kill his boss, Alexandros Sgourdos. They alleged that Spyropoulos believed Sgourdos was withholding profits and keeping a large amount of cash in a safe.
Spyropoulos was arrested in April 2013. He was indicted on attempted murder and other charges
Sgourdos co-owns the Tick Tock diners in Clifton and Manhattan.
