Fotis Dulos is the estranged husband of Jennifer Dulos, a Connecticut mother-of-five who has been missing since last May. While Dulos maintains that he is innocent, he has been charged with Jennifer’s murder and is currently under house arrest. He recently violated his house arrest terms to stop by a memorial set up for Jennifer and later got in trouble with the judge about it, according to CNN.
Dulos was permitted to leave his home in order to make three specific stops that had been pre-approved. After making these stops, he went to the end of his street where a memorial for Jennifer was erected. This was not a stop he was permitted to make. But it doesn’t seem that Dulos was visiting to pay his respects. Instead, he took several items from the memorial.
Dulos’ attorney, Norm Pattis, explained in court that his client “removed items that were there, put there for the purpose of taunting him.”
While Pattis recognized that his client should not have made the unauthorized stop or taken the items, he felt that Dulos deserved no further punishment.
The judge presiding over the case did not agree and slapped Dulos with even stricter house arrest terms.
Even though Jennifer’s body has not yet been found, law enforcement is treating this as a murder investigation and no longer believe that they will be able to find the missing mother alive. Their theory is that Dulos killed her and that he had assistance in the cover-up from his ex-girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, and former lawyer, Kent Mawhinney. Both Troconis and Mawhinney were charged with conspiracy to commit murder and pleaded not guilty.
Judge approves Fotis Dulos waiving his right to a probably cause hearing. Also puts him on strict house arrest after he allegedly dismantled a memorial to Jennifer Dulos outside his Farmington home.

Law enforcement believes that Jennifer was killed the morning of the same day she went missing, likely in her own garage. That same night, her blood was discovered staining her garage floor. More of her blood was found mixed with her estranged husbands in her kitchen sink. Despite how much evidence suggests otherwise, Dulos has said he believes Jennifer is still out there and alive.
“I remind the supporters Jennifer is missing — she may be presumed dead as far as they’re concerned (but) we’ve yet to see persuasive evidence of that,” Pattis said to reporters.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, the family’s nanny noticed strange items were missing from Jennifer’s home after her disappearance. This included many rolls of toilet paper, other cleaning supplies, a bucket, and a camping pillow.
