A Connecticut judge has dropped the murder and kidnapping case against the late Fotis Dulos. He died in January, two days after an apparent suicide attempt.

Prosecutors say Dulos killed his estranged wife, Jennifer Farber Dulos, the mother of five who disappeared in May.

He also faced several evidence tampering and hindering prosecution charges related to her disappearance, before police arrested him for the alleged murder and kidnapping.

Dulos pleaded not guilty to all charges.

His lawyer wanted to pursue a trial through the Dulos estate.
