- Jennifer Dulos, a suburban mother of five from Connecticut, vanished May 24 after dropping her children off at school

A Connecticut man charged in connection with the disappearance of his estranged wife is seeking a psychiatric evaluation of his mother-in-law, who now has custody of his five children.
An attorney for Fotis Dulos has filed a motion in family court on Friday calling for an evaluation of Gloria Farber because she's been previously hospitalized for psychiatric reasons, according to The Hartford Courant.
Dulos has not been allowed contact with his children since being charged with hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence in connection with the May 24 disappearance of Jennifer Dulos. A judge recently denied his request to have his wife's medical records unsealed.
Prosecutors say he and his girlfriend disposed of garbage bags that contained items that had Jennifer Dulos' blood on them. Both have pleaded not guilty.
Jennifer Dulos' children have been living with her mother, under armed bodyguard protection, on the Upper East Side. A lawyer for Farber says she's preparing a legal response.
