STAMFORD — Fotis Dulos is asking a judge to approve moving the GPS bracelet monitoring his location from his ankle to his arm.
In a motion filed Wednesday, his lawyers said the bracelet “is causing the flesh on the defendant’s ankles to be irritated and torn.”
The motion says the company that monitors and maintains the GPS bracelets through the state probation office has agreed to let him wear the bracelet on his arm.
The motion filed Thusrday asks a judge to OK the move as well.
The motion is one of several pending in the case charging Fotis Dulos with evidence tampering and hindering prosecution in connection with the disappearance of his estranged wife, Jennifer Dulos, May 24.
He is free after posting $500,000 bond. His next court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 2.
On Wednesday, attorneys for Fotis Dulos asked for a judge to drop the charges.
“The defendant stands charged with two crimes that have no basis in the evidence or law,” according to the motion, written by Norm Pattis, Kevin Smith and Zachary Reiland.
The lawyers note that neither Fotis Dulos nor anyone else has been charged with causing Jennifer Dulos’ disappearance.
According to arrest warrants, two people resembling Fotis Dulos and girlfriend Michelle Troconis were seen making more than 30 stops in a four-mile stretch of Albany Avenue in Hartford around the same time Jennifer Dulos was reported missing May 24.
Police said the videos also showed Fotis Dulos tossing garbage bags that were later found to contain his wife’s blood.
Jennifer Dulos was reported missing around 7 p.m. May 24 after she missed several doctors appointments in New York earlier in the day. New Canaan, state police and federal law enforcement began an investigation that has resulted in searches of several homes, a Hartford trash plant, and several bodies of water in the Avon/Farmington area.
Police said there were signs that the 50-year-old mother was the victim of a “serious physical assault” after finding blood stains and spatter in the garage of her home.
