Missing Connecticut mom Jennifer Dulos' estranged husband Fotis arrested again

Fotis Dulos was charged with an additional count of tampering with or fabricating evidence related to the disappearance of his wife Jennifer Dulos Missing Connecticut mom Jennifer Dulos' estranged husband Fotis arrested again

Dulos, 51, and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, have been free on US$500,000 (NZ$785,000) bail since their arrest in early June for hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence in connection with the May 24 disappearance of Farber Dulos.

State police say Fotis Dulos was arrested at his Farmington home Wednesday afternoon and charged him with tampering with physical evidence.

According to the arrest warrants, Fotis Dulos was borrowing his former employee's Toyota Tacoma the morning of May 24, the day Jennifer Dulos went missing. Dulos "was believed to have been lying in wait" for her to return from dropping their children off at school, the warrant states.

Dulos and Troconis were first arrested in early June and pleaded not guilty to evidence-tampering and hindering prosecution.

Fotis Dulos' girlfriend Michelle Troconis told police he had the truck cleaned days later, "because the body of Jennifer at some point was in there", according to the warrant, which details the vehicle's movements on the day Jennifer Dulos disappeared and subsequent days.

The arrest comes as new evidence revealed a "bloodlike substance" with the DNA of Jennifer Dulos was located on the seat of Fotis Dulos' employee's truck that had been spotted on video surveillance parked at Lapham Road where Jennifer Dulos' abandoned vehicle was found, state police said in the latest arrest warrant.

"The crime and clean-up are believed to have occurred between 8:05 AM and 10:25 AM", officers said. A legal expert interviewed by NewCanaanite.com has said authorities do not necessarily need to find Jennifer Dulos in order to bring a murder charge. Her mother, Gloria Farber, has had the children since Farber Dulos' disappearance. The business relied heavily on loans from Jennifer Dulos' father, who contributed millions to help Fotis buy properties, with sale proceeds used to pay off debts. The worker told investigators Fotis pressured him to remove the vehicle's seats, and later said he was anxious his estranged wife's hair might be in truck because he had hugged her days before she disappeared, according to the warrant.

An attorney said Fotis Dulos will plead not guilty to the new charge and criticized police for focusing all their attention on his client. We wish the state police spent more time looking for Jennifer and less trying to build a case against Fotis. It is unclear if Troconis faces any new charges. "When do we get the chance to question these folks?"

Dulos posted $500,000 bail on the new charge Wednesday, according to the warrant, and is scheduled to be back in court on this new charge on September 12.
