NORWALK, Conn. (AP) — The estranged husband of a Connecticut mother of five who has been missing for nearly four months has pleaded not guilty to a new charge of tampering with evidence.

Fotis Dulos, of Farmington, entered the plea Thursday during a brief hearing in Norwalk Superior Court. He remains free on bail.

New Canaan mother Jennifer Dulos went missing May 24 and hasn't been seen since.

Fotis Dulos and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, were charged in June with tampering with evidence and hindering prosecution in connection with Jennifer Dulos' disappearance.

Police allege they discarded items containing Jennifer Dulos' blood and performed other cover-up actions. They pleaded not guilty.

Police added another evidence tampering charge against both Fotis Dulos and Troconis last week. Troconis is due back in court next week.
