STAMFORD, Conn. (1010 WINS/AP) -- Fotis Dulos, the Connecticut man charged in connection with the disappearance of his estranged wife Jennifer Dulos, appeared in court Friday.

Jennifer Dulos, a mother of five from New Canaan, vanished May 24 and remains missing.

Fotis Dulos' legal team requested his wife's medical records in court Friday morning, but the judge refused.

His lawyer, Norm Pattis, has suggested Jennifer Dulos may have staged her disappearance to raise suspicions about Fotis Dulos during contentious divorce and child custody proceedings.

The judge denied the motion and prosecutors called it a "fishing expedition" by Dulos' lawyer. The judge agreed called it "speculative."

Another motion made by Fotis Dulos' lawyer was to have a GPS tracking device on Fotis Dulos moved to to his wrist from his ankle -- the judge denied that as well. 

The judge will make a decision at a later date on a motion prosecutors week requesting a gag order, which would ban representation from both sides from publicly discussing the case. Fotis Dulos' attorney is against this. 

Dulos and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, have pleaded not guilty to evidence tampering and hindering prosecution charges. Police allege they discarded items containing Jennifer Dulos' blood in Hartford.

The children have been staying with Jennifer Dulos' mother.
