A judge has ruled a former New Jersey diner manager charged with a murder-for-hire plot can remain out on bail.

Friday's ruling in Paterson denied a motion by the state to revoke bail for Georgios Spyropoulos. Prosecutors say Spyropoulos has violated some conditions of his release.

Spyropoulos was released on $600,000 bail and is under home confinement but is allowed out for doctor's visits, religious services or lawyer conferences.

The Record reports prosecutors contend Spyropoulos has eaten at restaurants a few times and brought a Tick Tock Diner employee to see a lawyer on an unrelated matter.

Spyropoulos was arrested in April and has been indicted on attempted murder and other charges. He's accused of plotting to kill his uncle, a co-owner of the diner.

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.
