Civil trial begins for estranged husband of missing Connecticut mother
HARTFORD — The estranged husband of a missing Connecticut mother of five has gone on trial in a civil lawsuit filed by his wife’s mother, who claims he owes her about $3 million in unpaid loans.
The trial began Tuesday in Hartford Superior Court. Gloria Farber is suing Fotis Dulos and his home building company.
Farber’s daughter, Jennifer Dulos, vanished May 24 from her New Canaan home and hasn’t been seen since. Farber alleges Fotis Dulos hasn’t repaid portions of loans her late husband gave him to develop homes.
Fotis Dulos denies he owes anything and says the money was a gift.
Fotis Dulos and his former girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, have pleaded not guilty to criminal charges of evidence tampering and hindering prosecution in connection with Jennifer Dulos’ disappearance.
