Fotis Dulos, his girlfriend and a local attorney appeared in court Wednesday morning for murder-related charges in connection with the disappearance of Jennifer Dulos, a mother of five who has been missing since May.
In the event that 52-year-old Fotis Dulos does posts bond, he has been ordered to house arrest.
The court appearance comes a day after Fotis was arrested Tuesday and charged with felony murder, murder and kidnapping in connection with his wife’s disappearance.
His attorney, Norm Pattis, previously said he was “cautiously optimistic” about Fotis Dulos making bail, however, he did say it is very expensive.
In court Wednesday, the judge kept bond the same as what prosecutors were asking for upon his arrest.
The judge also ordered house arrest and said Fotis must not leave his home without permission. He will be refitted with a GPS monitoring device.
Pattis has said that he plans to file a motion to dismiss Fotis Dulos’ charges.
Fotis Dulos’ girlfriend, 45-year-old Michelle Troconis, and local attorney, Kent Mawhinney, have each been arrested on murder-related charges and both appeared in court Wednesday to face conspiracy to commit murder charges.
