    The manager of the popular Tick Tock Diner in New Jersey has pleaded not guilty to charges he tried to hire a hit man to kill his uncle.

    Georgios Spyropoulos appeared in court in Paterson Friday in shackles. He has been held on $1 million bail since his  arrest Wednesday.

    Prosecutors allege Spyropoulos asked an undercover state trooper posing as a hit man to kill Alexandros Sgourdos and to get rid of the body. Sgourdos co-owns the Tick Tock diners in Clifton and Manhattan.

    Spyropoulos is charged with conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder and unlawful possession of a weapon.

    Spyropoulos' attorney tells The Associated Press his client's family is "mortified and distraught" over the allegations.
