The Cheshire man accused of stabbing and killing his wife in front of her children last month has a new attorney.
Norm Pattis is now representing 31-year-old Emmanuel Dominguez-VillaGomez, who is facing murder charges. Pattis is also representing Fotis Dulos, the estranged husband of missing New Canaan mother Jennifer Dulos.
Police said they found Dominguez-VillaGomez’s wife, Monica Dominguez, in a pool of blood when they responded to their Mountain Road home in September. Court documents said her two children witnessed the attack.
“Why? If they put me in front of him I would ask him why. Why put your family though this pain,” Diana Montes, Monica’s friend, said.
In court, Pattis petitioned for Dominguez-VillaGomez to be able to see his 2-year-old daughter. His next court date is October 30.
