NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The estranged husband of missing Connecticut mother Jennifer Dulos has been arrested again, according to reports.

Fotis Dulos, 51, was arrested at his Farmington, Conn., home around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday. 

He reportedly is facing a charge of tampering with evidence.

Dulos and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, have been free on $500,000 bail since their arrest in June for hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence in connection with the disappearance of Jennifer Dulos on May 24. He has been under GPS monitoring and barred from contacting his five children with his estranged wife.

Jennifer Dulos went missing May 24 after dropping her kids off at school and missing appointments that day. She has not been found. She and Fotis Dulos have been embroiled in a contentious divorce and child custody case for the past two years. Their children range in age from 8 to 13 and include two sets of twins.

Police have searched locations in several towns including a park in New Canaan where Jennifer Dulos' vehicle was found and the Hartford suburb home in Farmington.

Jennifer Dulos is the daughter of the late Hilliard Farber, who ran Chase Manhattan Bank's bond trading desk before founding his own brokerage firm in 1975.

Fotis Dulos is a developer of expensive homes who borrowed money from his wife's parents to buy properties, according to a lawsuit filed against Fotis Dulos by Jennifer Dulos' mother, Gloria Farber. The lawsuit in Connecticut state court claims Fotis Dulos has failed to repay Gloria Farber about $1.7 million in loans given to him.

Court documents filed in the divorce case say Jennifer Dulos feared Fotis Dulos would harm her in some way in retaliation for her filing for divorce, and she noted he had a gun. Jennifer Dulos has primary custody of the children, with their father getting to see them every other weekend.

After Jennifer Dulos went missing, Fotis Dulos asked the divorce case judge to grant him custody of the children.
