Husband to appear on murder charges in missing mother case

STAMFORD, CONN (AP) – Fotis Dulos, the estranged husband of a missing mother of five, faces arraignment yesterday on charges that he killed her amid contentious divorce and child custody proceedings.

Dulos is charged with murder and kidnapping in the apparent death of Jennifer Dulos of New Canaan, who has not been seen since she dropped her children off at school on May 24. State police arrested him on Tuesday and ordered him held in lieu of USD6 million bail.

Also due for arraignments in Stamford Superior Court are two other defendants – Fotis Dulos’ former girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, and his friend, attorney Kent Mawhinney, each charged with conspiracy to commit murder.
