STAMFORD — Fitted with a GPS tracker, Fotis Dulos was released Tuesday afternoon after a prosecutor failed to get his bond increased despite arguing that new evidence links the 51-year-old to his estranged wife’s New Canaan home.

During a hearing Tuesday morning, State’s Attorney Richard Colangelo said Fotis Dulos’ DNA was found mixed with his wife’s blood on the faucet of a kitchen sink at her New Canaan home.

Defense attorney Norm Pattis countered this revelation, claiming that the DNA could have been left from a visit with his children on Wednesday, two nights before Jennifer Dulos disappeared.

“He was present at the home with his children for dinner a few days earlier, it’s hardly surprising that there would be trace DNA,” Pattis said.

Several witnesses from that night, however, claim Fotis Dulos never went inside the home during that get-together, Colangelo said.

Considering the new evidence, Colangelo argued for bond to be increased to $850,000, while Pattis requested it be reduced to $100,000.

Judge John Blawie denied both requests and kept bail at $500,000.

After turning over his passport - which attorney Rich Rochlin had to fetch on his behalf - Fotis Dulos posted bail following an afternoon hearing about his divorce and the custody of his children.

Rochlin said Fotis Dulos likely will be returning to 4 Jefferson Crossing in Farmington.

Blawie said Fotis Dulos is required to wear an electronic monitoring device and he will not be allowed to leave the state. He will also be barred from seeing his children or any of Jennifer Dulos’ family.

Any further searches of his Farmington home, or any of his other properties, will require new search warrants.

Fotis Dulos and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, each pleaded not guilty Tuesday when they were arraigned on charges of tampering with evidence and hindering prosecution. Both requested a trial by jury.

Blawie also denied Pattis’ request to have his law firm take control of Fotis Dulos’ 401k for assurance purposes.

In his third and final motion, Pattis asked to have the trial expedited to August.

“Mr. Dulos is tired of sitting back and hearing people pick apart his motives,” Pattis said. “We are ready for trial now.”

The judge said that would require “significant discovery” and Fotis Dulos is not yet eligible for such a request.

“If he becomes eligible then, I assure you, the court will accommodate him,” Blawie said.

Pattis, a controversial New Haven lawyer who represents Infowars host Alex Jones and was condemned for racial Facebook posts, said the state lacks evidence connecting his client to the crime.

“There are powerful reasons to doubt he was even at the scene of his estranged wife’s home the day she disappeared,” Pattis said in a statement after meeting with his client for the first time on Monday. “I am unaware of any evidence supporting the theory he was involved in foul play.”

Troconis’ attorney, Andrew Bowman, argued inaccurate reporting by the media has prejudiced his client.

“I don’t need to remind you, that Michelle Troconis is presumed innocent and when you put out inaccurate information in the electronic and print media, it prejudices her right to a fair trial,” he said outside the courthouse.

On Monday, Pattis claimed Troconis was not in New Canaan on May 24 when Jennifer Dulos disappeared.

“I’m told by people with information that the girlfriend was never at the New Canaan home that day — the day the wife went missing — and that she can prove she never was there and that law enforcement may be satisfied,” Pattis said Monday on WPLR’s “Chaz & AJ” radio show. “That is a very significant fact in this case.”

Bowman walked away when he was asked Tuesday about where his client was on May 24.

Since being released on bail on June 3, Troconis has met with investigators at least twice, but claims to have no idea where to find Jennifer Dulos, a law enforcement source told the Hartford Courant. In court Tuesday, Pattis claimed neither Troconis, nor her lawyer, would reveal any details of those meetings.

Jennifer Dulos was last seen around 8 a.m. May 24 when she dropped off her five children at New Canaan Country School. After missing several doctor’s appointments, she was reported missing around 7 p.m. that night.

Around the same time, Fotis Dulos and Troconis were seen on video tossing garbage bags in more than 30 receptacles in a four-mile stretch in Hartford, according to their arrest warrants. The bags contained items with Jennifer Dulos’ blood on them, the warrants said.

Police said they found Jennifer Dulos’ Chevy Suburban abandoned on Lapham Road near Waveny Park, a few miles from her Welles Lane home, soon after she was reported missing.

Police said they also found blood spatter and signs of a “serious physical assault” inside Jennifer Dulos’ garage.

Since the disappearance, authorities have focused their searches on Waveny Park, a Hartford garbage dump and the properties connected to Fotis Dulos’ custom homebuilding company, the Fore Group.

Police searched a metal dumpster last week outside a New Canaan home developed by the Fore Group. Neighbors of 61 Sturbridge Hill Road said they were woken up by the loud sounds of metal banging in the predawn hours the morning after Jennifer Dulos went missing.

Police have also made several visits to 4 Jefferson Crossing in Farmington, where Fotis Dulos lived with Troconis and her daughter after Jennifer Dulos and her children moved out when she filed for divorce in 2017.

Drone footage showed Troconis leading investigators on Friday into the wooded area behind the Farmington home that leads to the West Hartford Reservoir.

Bowman has declined to comment about the case.

Pattis replaced Eugene Riccio, who represented Fotis Dulos at his first court appearance last week. Three teams of attorneys who have represented Fotis Dulos in his divorce case, which is scheduled for a hearing in Stamford family court Tuesday afternoon, and a civil lawsuit filed by his mother-in-law have petitioned to be removed from the proceedings in recent days.

Pattis took on a similar case in 2015 when he represented Jennifer Valiante, the girlfriend of Kyle Navin, who is serving 55 years in prison for killing his parents, Jeffrey and Jeannette. Valiante cooperated with authorities and was sentenced to eight years for her role in the killings.

Like the Dulos case, authorities conducted a massive search for the Navins, including at landfills as investigators have been doing for the past week in Hartford.

New Canaan police have created a website dedicated to the Jennifer Dulos case. Police said they have received more than 300 tips and about 75 responses to their request for security video footage.
