Fotis Dulos Held On $6M Bond In Murder Case

Jan 8, 2020

Bond was set at $6 million Wednesday for a Connecticut man accused of murdering his wife.

Fotis Dulos made his first court appearance since police charged him with murder and kidnapping in connection with the disappearance of his wife, Jennifer.

He was arraigned at Stamford Superior Court after being arrested Tuesday.

Dulos previously had been charged with evidence tampering and hindering an investigation since his estranged wife Jennifer Farber Dulos disappeared in May of last year. Her body has never been found.

Dulos’s attorney, Norm Pattis, said he thought police were grasping at straws with the charges.

“If the state can’t figure out what it’s trying to do after however many months it’s had to investigate this case, I don’t know how a jury will make a decision in the four to six weeks it’ll take to try this case,” he told reporters.

Pattis also complained about the amount of the bond set by Judge John Blawie. “In Connecticut ... you'll almost never see a bond of this magnitude for a person without an extensive criminal record,” said Pattis.

Dulos’ former girlfriend and his former divorce attorney were both charged with conspiracy to commit murder.

Police say the two helped Dulos cover up the killing and drew up a bogus alibi for him.
