Fotis Dulos, whose estranged wife Jennifer Dulos, disappeared back in May, has been re-arrested, according to officials.

Fotis, 51, was taken into custody on a new charge of tampering with evidence, according to The Hartford Courant. Further details were not immediately available. 

Jennifer, 50, was last seen May 24 dropping off her kids at school. She was reported missing later that day. Police have since accused Fotis and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, 44, of driving around Hartford the day Jennifer disappeared and disposing of garbage bags in 30 different locations. Items recovered had Jennifer's blood on them.

Fotis and Troconis had previously pleaded not guilty to evidence tampering and hindering prosecution in connection with Jennifer’s disappearance. Fotis has not yet entered a plea to the new charge, though he has always denied having a hand in Jennifer's disappearance.

Fotis' attorney previously said Jennifer may be staging her disappearance to frame her estranged husband. 

“We don’t know what had become of Jennifer, but the 'Gone Girl' hypothesis is very much on our mind,” lawyer Norm Pattis previously said in a statement.

In the best-selling novel by Gillian Flynn and the 2014 movie starring Ben Affleck, a wife fakes her own disappearance and frames her husband as a murderer. 

Jennifer and Fotis had spent the past two years fighting over custody of their five children, who have been staying with their maternal grandmother in New York.
