Lydia and Vladimir Guryev–a.k.a. Cynthia and Richard Murphy, Montclair’s alleged Russian spies–fessed up to being just that today. They then were escorted to an airport, and with 8 other comrades, flown back to Russia. All done in a Manhattan courtroom in front of Judge Kimba Wood (remember her?). In exchange, Russian President  Dmitri Medvedev signed pardons for four men that Moscow had considered spies for Western intelligence. It’s all in The New York Times, but there’s hardly enough for a James Bond plot. No word yet on what happens to the Guryev-Murphy’s Montclair abode.
