    The former manager of a northern New Jersey diner has been indicted on numerous charges stemming from what authorities say was a foiled plot to kill the co-owner of the restaurant, his uncle.

    Georgios Spyropoulos faces charges of conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder, attempted robbery and three weapons offenses. The 45-year-old Clifton resident faces a lengthy prison sentence if convicted.

    The indictment was handed up Wednesday by a state grand jury. Spyropoulos has maintained his innocence.

    State police say an informant told them Spyropoulos was searching for a hitman to torture and kill his boss, Alexandros Sgourdos. Authorities allege Spyropoulos believed Sgourdos was withholding profits and keeping a large amount of cash in a safe. 

    Sgourdos co-owns the Tick Tock diners in Clifton and Manhattan.
