Connecticut State Police said Fotis Dulos was arrested and charged with evidence tampering as part of a joint investigation with the New Canaan Police Department.

A mother of five children aged eight to 13, Jennifer Dulos went missing on May 24 after dropping her kids off at school in New Canaan. "The crime and clean-up are believed to have occurred between 8:05am and 10:25am", when Jennifer Dulos' vehicle was driven away from the home. Fotis posted a $500,000 bond where he was then released Wednesday night. Dulos' attorney joined his client shortly thereafter and told investigators that he and his client were leaving and would not provide an interview to police, according to the warrant.

A warrant to search the phone was later obtained and further linked Dulos to the disappearance, the arrest warrant states.

Known for developing opulent multimillion-dollar mansions in Connecticut, Fotis Dulos' business had struggled in recent years amid a downturn in demand for luxury homes, the Hartford Courant reported. Jennifer's family and friends want the people of New Canaan to know how much we appreciate the ongoing efforts and actions of the New Canaan Police and the greater New Canaan community: candles, bracelets, flyers and more. Authorities found her auto near a park, not far from her house.

Prosecutors say Jennifer Dulos' blood was found mixed with her husband's DNA in the kitchen sink of her home. Norm Pattis, Dulos' lawyer, said he had no information about the arrest.

Gumlenny did change seats, but told police he kept the other seats because he was anxious police might need them in the case of Jennifer Dulos' disappearance, the warrant said. When and if the state decides it can prove its case, we will welcome the chance to meet the case in open court.

When questioned about the towel, Troconis told police said she could not remember the color of the stain, but she admitted: "the towel did not smell like coffee".

Pattis said Dulos meant to plead not guilty to the new charges.

"It's an exhausting fight", he said. I love my children.

Troconis's attorney did not immediately respond to a Law&Crime request for comment.

Dulos was first arrested, along with his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, on Saturday, June 1, on charges of tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and hindering prosecution.

Detectives found some of the bags that were discarded, which contained items with Farber Dulos' blood, records show. "We will plead not guilty to these charges next week in Norwalk". Both were released on bond, surrendered their passports and were forced to wear Global Positioning System monitoring devices. They pleaded not guilty and posted $500,000 bail.Police allege Fotis Dulos and Troconis went to Hartford to dispose of garbage bags containing items with Jennifer Dulos' blood on them.
