Fotis Dulos -- who was taken into custody by Connecticut State Police at his home on Tuesday -- was initially charged with hindering prosecution and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence in connection with Jennifer Dulos' disappearance.

He was arrested again in November when he was charged with tampering with a vehicle police have linked to the case. He has pleaded not guilty to that charge.
