Missing Connecticut mom Jennifer Dulos may have suffered ‘serious physical assault’

first_imgNew Canaan Police Department (HARTFORD, Conn.) — Missing Connecticut mother Jennifer Dulos was the suspected victim of a “serious physical assault” at the home of her estranged husband, according to arrest warrants obtained Monday.Clothing and sponges soaked with Jennifer Dulos’ blood were found in trash cans in Hartford, where the documents said surveillance cameras captured a man appearing to be her husband, Fotis Dulos, disposing of garbage bags, according to the documents.At one point the man believed to be Fotis Dulos was seen putting an item into a storm drain grate, the arrest warrants said.The new evidence comes over one week into the search for Jennifer Dulos, a mother of five from New Canaan, who was last seen on May 24, according to police.Fotis Dulos, 51, of Farmington, and his live-in girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, 44, were arrested on Saturday, charged with tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and hindering prosecution, according to authorities.More charges are likely, prosecutors said Monday.Troconis and Fotis Dulos were shackled as they made their first court appearances Monday.They were held on $500,000 bond.Fotis Dulos is not expected to post bond, his attorney said; Troconis’ lawyer said she would.Troconis was ordered to have no contact with Dulos or the victim’s family.Their next court date is June 11.Jennifer Dulos’ disappearance came amid a contentious custody dispute between the former couple.In 2017, Jennifer Dulos filed for an emergency order for full custody of the children, which was denied, court documents show. Jennifer Dulos and Fotis Dulos had temporary shared custody of the children until the end of the divorce proceedings.Jennifer Dulos alleged that Fotis Dulos exhibited intensifying “irrational, unsafe, bullying, threatening and controlling behavior,” stating that she was afraid for her safety as well as the physical safety and emotional well-being of their children.The mother alleged that Fotis Dulos threatened to kidnap their children on May 30, 2017, if she did not agree to his terms in the divorce settlement and that he had bought a gun that year.In Fotis Dulos’ amended reply to the motion, he claims that he legally bought the gun in 2017 for home security. He denied exhibiting “irrational, unsafe, bullying, threatening and/or controlling behavior” and stated that he never threatened to kidnap the children.It is unclear where the Dulos’ five children are now, but a statement from family spokeswoman Carrie Luft on Friday said they are “safe and well-cared for.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Truth be told

first_img Previous Article Next Article Many employees have time off work because of a stress-related illness butif, at interview, they failed to declare a similar problem in a previousemployment, they could risk losing their job. Sensitive handling for allparties will help achieve a fair resolution, by Jonathan Maude Peter applies for a position as manager at Logg & Co, a freightlogistics company. Logg & Co anticipates winning a contract that is likelyto increase the work coming into its depot by 50 per cent and has decided torecruit someone to perform the managerial function at a local level. Peter’s application form and CV show he has a fair amount of experience. Theanswers he gives on the medical questionnaire do not disclose any significantmedical condition. But he has, in fact, suffered from stress-related illness inthe past. Following interview it is decided to offer him the position as itappears he will need minimal guidance in undertaking the role. Is Logg & Cowise to offer him the job without further medical investigation or discussion? Non-disclosure Logg & Co has considered Peter’s application on the basis of hisexperience and his interview. In addition, Peter has completed a medicalquestionnaire that does not highlight any pre-existing issues that shouldconcern the company. On 5 February 2002 the Court of Appeal, in the decision of Hatton vSutherland and others, considered four cases on appeal from four separatecounty courts. Each concerned awards of damages against employers after thelitigants concerned had stopped working due to stress-induced psychiatricillness. In essence, for the employer to be liable for negligence, the employee needsto show that the employer has breached a duty of care that it owes to employeesby allowing a practice to continue when it was reasonably foreseeable it wouldcause injury. The employer is obliged to provide a safe system of work; thisamounts to an obligation to provide reasonable support to the employee toperform his or her duties in a way that will avoid causing psychologicalinjury. This recent decision follows a number of cases in which employers have beenheld liable for psychiatric injury since the landmark case of Walker vNorthumberland County Council, 1995, 1 All ER 737. The Court of Appeal used theHatton decision to give useful “practical propositions” that areintended to enable courts to consider claims in the future. One such”practical proposition” is that an employer is entitled to take theinformation before it at face value and is not required to investigate anymedical issues further unless it is put on notice that there is an issue thatwarrants further investigation. Logg & Co is therefore entitled to rely onthe information given by Peter. Medical history If Peter had disclosed he had suffered from a stress-related illness, itwould have been necessary for Logg & Co to consider obtaining furtherdetails about the circumstances that caused it. It would also have needed toascertain whether there were steps it should take to reduce the possibilitythat Peter would suffer a recurrence. This would also go some way todischarging any duty to make reasonable adjustments that Logg & Co may oweto Peter under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995. Peter has been in his job for six months. He has not complained to Logg& Co about any work-related stress, but there has been a noticeableincrease in his intermittent sickness absences during the past two months.Peter has now informed Logg & Co that he will be absent for two weekshaving been certified as suffering from stress-related depression by hisdoctor. What action should be taken? There will need to be a meeting with Peter to discuss the absence and thereasons for it. It would also be advantageous to obtain independent medicalevidence as to his condition and to consider steps the company might take toalleviate factors that may be attributing to the condition when he returns tohis position. The important point to bear in mind is that Logg & Co will only beliable for breaching the duty to provide a safe system of work if the companycan be shown to have caused or materially contributed to any harm suffered byPeter. The Court of Appeal in Hatton suggested that if Logg & Co can show ithas taken steps to avoid breaching its duty it is unlikely to be found to havebreached it. If independent medical advice about Peter’s problems is obtained andcounselling or other assistance offered, the company is unlikely to be found tobe acting in breach of its duty. It must ensure that its contractualdocumentation provides Logg & Co with the right to request independentmedical advice on a specific employee. Clearly, if Peter refused to co-operatewith any such examination it would not assist him in any subsequent claim broughtagainst Logg & Co. Redistribution of duties Other issues that may need to be discussed with Peter include theredistribution of duties or demotion. Logg & Co will not be in breach ofits duty if Peter wants to stay in the job rather than face demotion even if hesubsequently suffers from illness through the pressures of the job. This is oneof the major issues to have come out of the Hatton decision: both employer andemployee bear the risk, so the employee needs to decide whether to risk anypsychological breakdown by staying in the job or consider dismissal ordemotion. If Logg & Co took the view that a redistribution of duties or demotionwas not appropriate, it might be in a position to consider dismissal as thecourt would consider the size and scope of Logg & Co’s operation, togetherwith the demands faced by the company, to decide what is reasonable. Again, this is an interesting point to come out of the Hatton decision, asthe court considered practical issues that may benefit smaller employers. Previously, the courts have not been particularly sympathetic to anyarguments that costs or a lack of resources prohibited making certainadjustments. Employment history The medical examination and discussions with Peter reveal that in hisprevious job he suffered from occupational stress and that he eventually lefthis former employer as a result of it. Logg & Co decides that as the volumeof work from the new contract is not as great as it originally anticipated,some of the managerial responsibilities will be run centrally and Peter willreturn to a non-managerial position. What are the issues that now need to beconsidered? It is for Logg & Co and Peter to agree his return to a non-managerialposition. The employer needs to be aware that it cannot simply impose changesunless it has the contractual right to do so. As a result, it would be sensibleto ensure all discussions about Peter’s return are noted and any change instatus is agreed, in writing, with Peter. This will amount to a variation to Peter’s contract of employment and Logg& Co will not simply be able to allege, in defending a constructivedismissal claim for example, that it was acting in Peter’s best interests andin a way so as not to breach the duty of care it owed him. Logg & Co is now aware of the previous condition and that Peter did notdisclose it. Despite the fact it may be in a position to take action as aresult of this non-disclosure, it is aware of the condition and, accordingly,will need to ensure regular discussions take place with Peter to monitor hisprogress. If it becomes apparent that Peter is unable to undertake even the reducedrole, then Logg & Co will need to consider alternatives with him and thismay include terminating his employment. If it does take the step of terminating the contract of employment, subjectto obligations that it may owe in connection with unfair dismissal rights andpossibly claims under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, it is unlikely tobe found to be in breach of the duty of care. If Peter was successful in any claim against Logg & Co, the Court ofAppeal has indicated that any damages would take account of the pre-existingdisorder or vulnerability and of the possibility that Peter would havesuccumbed to a stress-related disorder in any event. In addition, Logg & Co would only pay for the proportion of harmsuffered as a direct result of its wrongdoing. In this event, the level ofcompensation should be reduced fairly dramatically.

First assessment of MHC diversity in wild Scottish red deer populations

first_imgControl and mitigation of disease in wild ungulate populations are one of the major challenges in wildlife management. Despite the importance of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) genes for immune response, assessment of diversity on these genes is still rare for European deer populations. Here, we conducted the first assessment of variation at the second exon of the MHC DRB in wild populations of Scottish highland red deer, the largest continuous population of red deer in Europe. Allelic diversity at these loci was high, with 25 alleles identified. Selection analyses indicated c. 22% of amino acids encoded under episodic positive selection. Patterns of MHC allelic distribution were not congruent with neutral population genetic structure (estimated with 16 nuclear microsatellite markers) in the study area, the latter showing a marked differentiation between populations located at either side of the Great Glen. This study represents a first step towards building an immunogenetic map of red deer populations across Scotland to aid future management strategies for this ecologically and economically important species.last_img read more

Sammy frustrated by ‘tough lessons’ for title-chasing St Lucia

first_imgST Lucia Zouks skipper Darren Sammy has expressed frustration with the team’s reading of its own home field conditions, following a loss to the table-topping Amazon Warriors in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) on Wednesday night.For the playoff-chasing team, the loss came on the back of a win against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. Defending 161 against the Warriors, however, Zouks were unable to repeat the type of performance that was typified by energetic efficiency.“As a team we have just not executed our plans.  Especially when you are playing at home where you know the conditions, we are getting a lesson from the opposition about how to play on the wicket and it should be the other way around,” Sammy said.“We have two games left and they are must-wins.  We have Jamaica next and we are going to come back stronger.”Having played eight games so far, Zouks are in fourth spot on five points, ahead of the Barbados Tridents on four and the last place Jamaica Tallawahs who also have four. The Tridents have, however, played two games less to date.last_img read more

NBA scouts size up Tyus Battle and Oshae Brissett

first_imgTyus Battle, Syracuse’s best player over the past two seasons, has played his final game at SU. While unlikely, forward Oshae Brissett may have, too. He will reportedly test the NBA Draft waters. The Daily Orange spoke with several NBA scouts for their analysis of the Orange’s top two talents over the past two seasons. The NBA scouts requested to speak on the condition of anonymity because they are not authorized by their respective teams to be named. Tyus BattleYear: JuniorAge: 21Shooting guard6-foot-6, 205 poundsAccording to all major draft boards, Battle is not projected to be selected in June’s draft. That doesn’t necessarily mean he can’t sign with a team, or play in the G-League and try to earn an NBA spot from there. He also could sign a two-way contract, in which he’d spend the bulk of the season in the NBA G League and not more than 45 days with the NBA team. Scouts characterize Battle as a quality college scorer who showed flashes of an ability to take over games. He scored 17.2 points per game on 43.1 percent shooting, compared with his sophomore season, in which he tallied 19.2 points per game on 39.9 percent shooting. Scouts said his ball-handling improved since his freshman season. His shot wavered. His passing is above-average. “You wish he was as aggressive as he was in the Duke game — every game,” said an Eastern Conference scout. “His jumper isn’t there. Defensively, because of the zone, you don’t know too much. In the combine last year, he wasn’t aggressive. He’s not assertive. He won’t assert himself and that’s concerning. If he does go undrafted, he could have a fresh start. But he’s just not wired to be aggressive, because he’s very laid back, almost to a detriment.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“This was supposed to be the year you come back and dominant,” the scout added. “It’s not all his fault. The Syracuse offense doesn’t really allow for that.”“Tyus’ shot got better, and it was getting better,” another scout said. “Then it got worse. It was an issue his freshman year. Then it got better. Last year, it got worse, then better. It fluctuates too much. He’s very inconsistent. I can’t figure out what it is with his shot. It’s tough as you get older to change your shooting mechanics because of muscle memory.”Last year, Battle entered his name into the NBA Draft process, went through the pre-draft combine but then pulled his name without signing an agent to return to SU. Some NBA mock drafts projected he’d be a late second-round selection. Instead, he came back to Syracuse, where he finished with 1,647 career points, 16th in program history. “Look, he should have gotten a lot better this year,” the first scout said in January. “He goes back, he should have taken a big step. Now he’s shooting worse. By all means, Tyus could go undrafted, but get signed on the right team and dominate. He could really have a great time. But he never should have gone back. He’s already not a great fit at Syracuse. Maybe, he gets drafted.”Oshae BrissettYear: SophomoreAge: 20Forward6-foot-8, 210 poundsBrissett arrived at Syracuse two years ago as the No. 1 recruit from Canada in his class. He immediately started as a freshman, averaging 14.9 points and 8.8 rebounds per game. His numbers dipped slightly this season to 12.4 points and 7.5 boards per game. A scout told The Daily Orange in November at Madison Square Garden that Brissett’s projected draft stock had dipped from 33rd to 80th, a likely drafted prospect. Several scouts said they hadn’t seen improvement from his first year to his second, and his ability to finish around the rim was concerning. “He’s having a questionable year,” an Eastern Conference scout said. “He doesn’t move well enough. Can he shoot and defend? You don’t trust his shot or consistency shooting.”“He can’t handle the ball. He looks the part, but he’s very limited in what he can do,” the scout added. “I don’t know what the substance is there with him.”Brissett said his primary focus this offseason will be to upgrade his ball-handling. He wants to get to the rim with more ease — and finish. He wants to be a better facilitator from the high post, where he became more comfortable as the season wore on and his perimeter shooting dropped. He also said he wants to more smoothly transition from the dribble to his shot in the pull-up jumper range. Given he isn’t a projected NBA pick, it’s increasingly likely Brissett returns for at least one more season at SU. As one of two returning starters (forward Elijah Hughes), he’d have plenty of opportunities to grow and show scouts the potential he flashed as a freshman in the NCAA Tournament. “Next year I want to be the guy who can rebound, score and pass,” Brissett said following SU’s season-ending loss to Baylor in the NCAA Tournament. “I want to be a triple-double guy.” Comments Published on March 29, 2019 at 5:01 pm Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21 Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Angels get another big night from Kole Calhoun, clutch pitching to sweep Dodgers

first_img How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire “Yeah, I got down in the dugout, looked at the pitches, saw they were outside,” Bellinger said. “That’s when I was, ‘alright dude, we’ve got to do something about this.’ One of those nights for (Iassogna). It’s going to happen. It’s alright.”In the ninth, Hansel Robles worked a perfect inning to finish the sweep, giving the Angels a four-game winning streak heading into seven games against the rebuilding Baltimore Orioles and Detroit Tigers at home.The Angels have climbed back toward the postseason race in the wake of the tragic loss of Tyler Skaggs. Since he died, the team is 12-6.“I think it’s something that definitely shook us big time,” Calhoun said. “We could’ve gone two directions, but I think everyone really chose to be together for one another. I think it’s shown on the field, too. We’re playing good ball right now and pulling for each other. It’s something we’ve decided to do as a ballclub.”Staff writer J.P. Hoornstra contributed to this story. Angels fail to take series in Oakland, lose in 10 innings Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter The Dodgers also lost a pair of players.Starting pitcher Ross Stripling left the game after five innings with a stiff neck, and infielder Kiké Hernandez came out with “left hand soreness.” Hernandez tweaked his hand on a swing in the fourth inning. X-rays were negative.Roberts said after the game that they’ll know more on the status of both players in the coming days.The Angels, of course, have seen their pitching staff devastated by tragedy, injury and ineffectiveness, leaving them to give another opportunity to Jaime Barria for Wednesday’s start.Related Articles Barria, who just turned 23 last week, was coming off a start in which he’d allowed 10 runs against the Seattle Mariners over the weekend. This time he had the task of facing the team with the best record in the majors, on the road, and all he allowed was a Justin Turner home run in the fourth.Barría gave up three hits and he walked two, despite often pitching behind in the count. When Barría retired Max Muncy on a grounder to end the fifth, Barria slammed his fist into his glove as he walked off the mound.“He didn’t doubt himself, threw all his pitches with conviction,” Angels catcher Kevan Smith said. “He just had confidence out there tonight. I think when a little doubt gets into his mind, he kind of shakes to other pitches. He’s got to trust it. He’s a big-league pitcher, has big-league stuff, and he needs to attack them with everything he has. I think that’s what you saw tonight against the best team in the big leagues right now.”Barria left with a 2-1 lead thanks to Calhoun’s first-inning RBI double and his fourth-inning homer.The Angels added an unearned run after Dodgers catcher Austin Barnes threw a ball into center field when David Fletcher stole second in the sixth. The Dodgers got that run back in the bottom of the inning, on an RBI single by Corey Seager against lefty Adalberto Mejia.After that, the Angels still had 12 outs to get against the powerful Dodgers, with a short-handed bullpen. Ty Buttrey, the Angels’ best reliever, was unavailable after throwing 30 pitches on Tuesday night.Taylor Cole, normally a long reliever or opener, escaped a jam in the seventh. After walking two, he got Muncy to hit into a double play, prompting Muncy to slam his helmet into the turf.In the eighth, Cam Bedrosian faced the minimum after allowing a leadoff single to Turner. Bedrosian, who came into the game holding lefties to a .157 average, struck out Cody Bellinger looking.After Bedrosian got A.J. Pollock to hit into a double play, Bellinger came out to voice his displeasure to plate ump Dan Iassogna, who ejected him.
