Fotis Dulos, Girlfriend, Attorney All Charged In Missing New Canaan Mom Murder

The estranged husband of a New Canaan, Connecticut, mother who disappeared in May, was charged with her murder, along with two alleged accomplices. 

Connecticut State Police spokeswoman Christine Jeltema read the charges against Fotis Dulos, his former girlfriend Michelle Troconis, and his former divorce attorney Kent Mawhinney, shortly after the three were booked.

“Fotis Dulos who is charged with murder, felony murder and kidnapping. With a court set bond of $6 million. Michelle Troconis, charged with conspiracy to commit murder, with a court set bond of $2 million. Kent Mawhinney, charged with conspiracy to commit murder, with a court set bond of $2 million.”

The charges are in connection with the disappearance of Jennifer Dulos, a New Canaan mother of five, whose body has yet to be found. Norm Pattis, Fotis Dulos’s criminal defense attorney, doubts that the state has a case.

“We’ve sat for months waiting for and listening to speculation. And now we get to address the proof, and we are confident about our case. And we are confident about our odds. We said long ago bring it on. They did. And we are here. We are ready.”   

All three defendants are in state custody and are to be arraigned in Superior Court in Stamford.
