Mother of missing woman seeks custody of grandchildren

STAMFORD  — The mother of a missing Connecticut woman has asked a judge to grant her sole custody of her daughter's five children.

Gloria Farber filed her motion Tuesday in Superior Court. She has been taking care of the children at her New York home since Jennifer Dulos, of New Canaan, disappeared on May 24.

The children's father, Fotis Dulos, is charged with hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence.

Prosecutors say he and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, disposed of garbage bags in Hartford that contained items that had Jennifer Dulos' blood on them. Both pleaded not guilty.

Fotis Dulos, who is free on bond, has not been allowed contact with his children since his arrest. Farber currently has temporary custody.

Fotis Dulos and Troconis are both due back in court on Friday.
