(WTNH) — Lawyers for Fotis Dulos are banned from talking about the disappearance and alleged murder of his estranged wife for 40 years.

According to Hearst Connecticut Media, this is part of a probate court settlement approved Tuesday. The agreement also requires lawyers Norm Pattis and Kevin Smith to return more than half the $250,000 retainer he gave them.
