The estranged husband of a missing Connecticut mother of five has been charged with murder in her disappearance.

State police took Fotis Dulos from his Farmington home Tuesday.

Attorney Norm Pattis said he has learned that two other people have also been charged, one with murder and another with conspiracy to commit murder.

Dulos’ former attorney Kent Douglas Mawhinney says he is one of the two people charged.

Jennifer Dulos, of New Canaan, disappeared May 24 amid contentious child custody proceedings with Fotis Dulos. She hasn't been seen since.

Fotis Dulos and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, were previously charged with evidence tampering and hindering prosecution in connection with the disappearance. 

Dulos is being held in lieu of a $6 million bond on the murder charge pending an appearance in Bridgeport Superior court, according to Pattis. He said he hopes to get Dulos before a judge Tuesday afternoon.
