FARMINGTON, CT (WFSB) - The home of a man arrested in connection with the disappearance of his estranged wife has been taken off the market.

The realtor for 4 Jefferson Crossing confirmed to Channel 3 first that the listing was canceled due to the pending foreclosure case.

The $4.3 million home is where Fotis Dulos lives.

"Mr. Dulos requested that he didn't want his home listed anymore. So after checking in with our legal folks, we are fine with releasing that, so we took it off the market today," said Rob Guiffria, of Tea Leaf Realty.

When asked why Dulos wanted it off the market, Guiffria said "he didn't give us a reason. But when a property goes into foreclosure, sometimes sellers leave it listed, sometimes they take it off the market."

Fotis Dulos faces tampering with evidence and hindering prosecution charges in connection with the disappearance of Jennifer Dulos. He faced a judge last week. She has been missing since May 24.

An attorney who represents the mother of Jennifer Farber Dulos began a foreclose on the home, as Channel 3 reported earlier this month.

Documents obtained by Eyewitness News claim that Fotis Dulos failed to make mortgage payments on the property since Nov. 2018.

They also claim he owes the Town of Farmington $21,000 in back property taxes.

The attorney said the Farber family put up $2.5 million of their money as collateral and when Fotis stopped paying, the Farbers had to pay the bank for him.

That's when they started the legal proceedings.

Fotis Dulos was ordered back to court on Monday for a check on his GPS monitoring device.

It was required by a judge when he posted bond for the criminal charges.

In a statement, Fotis' attorney Norm Pattis said "Apparently a man presumed innocent needs the battery on his GPS monitor adjusted. We expect no drama and no controversy."
