The Stamford/Norwalk State Attorney is asking the court to enact a "gag order" on all parties involved with the case of the missing mom Jennifer Farber Dulos.

State Attorney Richard Colangelo Jr. filed the one-sentence motion on Wednesday, Aug. 7,  saying statements could prejudice the case.

In response, her estranged husband, Fotis Dulos’ attorney, has filed a five-page response, arguing that prosecutors should focus their time on preventing police leaks to the media.

Jennifer Dulos, of New Canaan, has been missing since Friday, May 24, after dropping off her five children at school.  Since then a massive search has been underway by local, state and federal law enforcement officials. 

Fotis Dulos and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis have been charged with hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence. 

The duo was charged after video surveillance showed Fotis Dulos dumping bags with bloody items containing his wife's blood at more than 30 spots. Both are free on $500,000 bond. 

It is unclear when the judge will make a decision. Fotis Dulos is scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on Friday, Aug. 9.
