Fotis Dulos, husband of missing CT mother, arrested on new charge

The estranged husband of a mom of five who's been missing since May was arrested for a second time Wednesday in connection to his wife's disappearance, police said.

Fotis Dulos is facing a new charge of tampering with or fabricating physical evidence. But investigators say they later found a blood-like substance and Jennifer Dulos' DNA in the truck.

Fotis Dulos was charged with another count of tampering with evidence Wednesday. He bonded out on an additional $500,000 bond.

Dulos and his girlfriend have been out on $500,000 bail since June 11. Dulos "was believed to have been lying in wait" for her to return from dropping their children off at school, the warrant states. Her 2017 black Chevrolet Suburban was later found on Lapham Road later that day.

Jennifer's blood was found mixed with Fotis Dulos' DNA on the kitchen sink faucet of her home in New Canaan, according to authorities.

The truck he is believed to have been driving on the day she vanished actually belonged to one of his employees, the warrant said.

According to the public information office of the Connecticut State Police, the agency's Western District Major Crime Squad arrested Fotis Dulos at his home. "We are confident that she will, in the end, tell the truth at trial", Dulos' attorney, Norm Pattis, told Fox News in a statement Wednesday.

In the warrant, Troconis claimed that she had been talking on her cellphone and didn't know what he was doing.

State police released a 43-page arrest warrant after Dulos arrest.

This continues to be a developing story.

The Dulos' five children are in the custody of Jennifer Dulos' mother. Her friends reported her missing that night, saying she had missed several appointments and had been out of communication for 10 hours.

The warrant also details how police believe Fotis used a Fore Group worker's Toyota Tacoma truck to go down to New Canaan.

Troconis' attorney Andrew Bowman told WFSB: "Remember that Michelle is presumed innocent and she should be". The notes were proven to be inaccurate and "included alibi witnesses who were later determined to be false", according to the warrant, and Troconis later admitted the events did not happen. "The state is a terrifying enemy, but a clean conscience is a powerful ally".

Troconis was processed at the state barracks in Bridgeport, posted bond and has been released from police custody, authorities confirmed. "We're prepared to let judgment in this case rest in the jury's hands".

The original charges were based on surveillance videos appearing to show Dulos making multiple stops on a four-mile stretch of road as Dulos tossed out garbage bags that were later found to contain Farber Dulos' blood.
