A closer look at Fotis Dulos' arrest warrant

Missing Connecticut mom Jennifer Dulos' estranged husband Fotis arrested again

Missing Connecticut mom Jennifer Dulos' estranged husband Fotis arrested again

The woman charged alongside her boyfriend in the case of missing CT mom Jennifer Dulos has admitted to cops that she helped him clean a truck - but she claims she thought they were dealing with a "coffee spill", according to an arrest warrant.

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.

Connecticut State Police said additional information on Dulos' criminal charges would be available after he had been processed later on Wednesday.

Troconis allegedly told police in an August 13 interview that she had not seen Dulos on the morning of May 24, contradicting prior statements, and revealed that she was with Fotis Dulos when he cleaned "spilled coffee" out of a truck he was driving that morning.

Images in the new arrest warrant show a vehicle believed to be Dulos' employee's truck parked about 100 feet from where the missing woman's Suburban was later found abandoned. Both have denied any involvement in the disappearance of Jennifer Dulos.

Authorities say the estranged husband of a missing CT mother of five has been arrested again in connection with her disappearance.

During the interview, Troconis also identified herself and Fotis Dulos on surveillance video as Fotis allegedly dumped black garbage bags into trash containers in the Hartford area with items that were later found to contain the blood of Jennifer Dulos.

State police say Fotis Dulos was arrested at his Farmington home Wednesday afternoon and charged him with tampering with physical evidence. "And I believe the prosecution is reluctant to charge Mr. Dulos with murder until they've assembled all of the evidence they can, including the body, before they file the formal charge. because the absence of a body could create a reasonable doubt in an ordinary prosecution".

Norm Pattis, an attorney for Fotis Dulos, confirmed Troconis' arrest in a statement to ABC News. We wish the state police spent more time looking for Jennifer and less trying to build a case against Fotis. The new warrant speaks of a lying lover and handyman with something to hide.

Dulos gave a short statement to reporters outside the Connecticut State Police office on Wednesday.

She left with her attorney, Andrew Bowman, a short time later. "I love my children, that's about it". He is scheduled to appear in court September 12 on the new tampering charge. Investigators later discovered the "blood-like substance" on one of the seats. An attorney for Troconis said she should be presumed innocent. They have pleaded not guilty and were freed on $500,000 bail. "We will plead not guilty to these charges next week in Norwalk".
