Connecticut State Police have arrested 52-year-old Kent Mawhinney in connection to the murder of missing mom Jennifer Dulos, multiple sources told yc.news. A source close to the investigation previously told us the lawyer was “considered a fugitive until captured.”
She was the estranged wife of Fotis Dulos, who was Mawhinney’s client in civil case. Fotis Dulos and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, have also been charged in Farber Dulos’ murder, according to the Courant.
Jennifer Dulos vanished on May 24 after dropping her five children off at school.
On June 1, the case garnered international attention when Fotis & his former mistress-turned-girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, 44, were arrested and charged with hindering prosecution and tampering with physical evidence in connection to the mother-of-five’s disappearance.
Police previously said they located video surveillance that appeared to show the two dumping bags of evidence – including blood drenched sponges, clothing, and other material – at over 30 locations in a four-mile radius.
Michelle posted bond and was subsequently released from custody the same day. Fotis posted bond shortly thereafter.
Their short-lived release was cut short after Fotis Dulos & Michelle Troconis were re-arrested Tuesday morning for charges pertaining to the murder of Jennifer Dulos. 52-year-old Kent Mawhinney, a Connecticut based attorney, was also arrested and charged in connection to the murder of the mother-of-five.
