Fotis Dulos, 52, Michelle Troconis, 44 and attorney Kent Mawhinney were charged in connection to the murder of missing Connecticut mother-of-five, Jennifer Farber Dulos, 50, of New Canaan.
“We categorically deny that Mr. Dulos had any involvement in the disappearance of his wife Jennifer and we defy the state to prove she is in-fact dead. As far as we’re concerned Mr. Dulos is not guilty,” Norm Pattis said at a press conference Tuesday night. “The warrants come as a great relief to us because after month of listening to innuendo suggestion and rumors we have something to shoot at and we intend to start firing those shots at Mr. Dulos’ bond hearing tomorrow morning.”
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.
