View Comments ()



    The case of a man accused of conspiring to kill has been continued.

    Milford Police arrested Gregory Christofakis, 50, and his girlfriend, Ziba Guy, 44, both former Milford residents who now live in Orange in connection with an alleged plan to solicit the murder and assault of their ex-spouses.

    Guy's former husband said that Christofakis and Guy had been threatening him and he feared something like this would happen.

    Christofakis, who owns Greg's Auto Body in Milford, was charged with criminal attempt to commit murder and conspiracy to commit assault in the first degree.

    He is being held on a $1 million bond and was in court on Tuesday for a bond reduction hearing, but the request was denied.

    Christofakis was convicted in 2011 of third-degree assault and sentenced to one year in jail with a conditional discharge after 18 months. In 2006, he was convicted of criminal violation of a restraining order, according to court records.

    Guy, an Ob/Gyn in New York, was been charged with conspiracy to commit assault in the first degree. Bond was set at $500,000 and she was released from custody, according to court records.

    She is due back in court on Feb. 21.

    The arrest documents are sealed until Dec. 3.
