Just two days after his second arrest in connection with the disappearance of his estranged wife, Fotis Dulos at Superior Court in Hartford for the latest hearing in the ongoing civil case brought against him by his father-in-law’s estate.
“We don’t have any comments,” Dulos’ attorney said.
According to court documents, Jennifer Dulos’ mother, Gloria Farber, alleges that Fotis failed to pay back the estate millions of dollars in loans he was given to back his construction company the Fore Group.
Jennifer Dulos has been missing since May 24. She was in the midst of a divorce and custody battle with Fotis at the time of her disappearance.
“It’s a way for the court to try to move the case forward and avoid another appeal,” Richard Weinstein, attorney for Farber’s estate said.
Weinstein asked the judge to increase the lien amount his client has on Fore Group properties which was denied. The judge also denying a request to vacate the liens.
“Try to recover some of the money for his kids,” Weinstein said.
Faber has temporary custody of her grandchildren and they have been staying with her since Jennifer vanished.
For weeks, the search for Jennifer has spanned the state and authorities have spent days sifting through trash at a facility Hartford after bags containing Dulos’ blood were found. Law enforcement officials said surveillance video captured two people resembling and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, throwing out bags on Albany Avenue in Hartford that ended up in the trash plant.
Fotis and Troconis were both arrested and charged with hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence in June. They have both pleaded not guilty.
Court documents in the case say investigators who responded to the missing person report in May found blood splatter and evidence of cleanup attempts at Jennifer’s New Canaan home.
Fotis is now facing an additional criminal charge this week of tampering with evidence. According to the most recent court documents, Jennifer’s blood was found on the seat of a pick-up belonging to his employee, the same truck investigators believe Fotis drove to and from New Canaan the day Jennifer went missing.
Fotis is due back in court next week on the criminal charges, the civil case is set for December.
