Fotis Dulos

Jennifer Farber Dulos has been missing since May 24. Fotis Dulos, 52, was first arrested in early June and charged with tampering with or fabricating physical evidence. He was also charged with hindering the prosecution. He was released on bond after he pleaded not guilty.

“Earlier this afternoon, detectives from the State Police Western District Major Crime Squad arrested Fotis Dulos at his home in connection to the disappearance of Jennifer Farber Dulos," Connecticut State Police said in a statement.

The day after Jennifer Farber Dulos disappeared, Fotis Dulos went to police headquarters with his lawyer.

"Dulos and his attorney both left NCPD headquarters without providing any information on his wife's disappearance, and to date he has declined to cooperate with this investigation in any way," according to the criminal complaint.

Police found evidence linking Dulos to his wife's disappearance including video footage of a man matching his description dumping garbage bags in multiple trash cans and placing an item into a storm drain.

Dulos posted $500,000 bail and is set to appear in court on Sept. 12.

His girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, was also previously charged with evidence tampering and hindering prosecution in connection with Jennifer Dulos' disappearance. She also pleaded not guilty.
