Michelle Troconis Arrested One Day After Fotis Dulos in Jennifer Dulos’ Disappearance

Fotis Dulos was charged with an additional count of tampering with or fabricating evidence related to the disappearance of his wife Jennifer Dulos

About one week later, New Canaan Police charged Fotis Dulos, and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, with hindering and tampering in connection with her disappearance. Police believe he left the scene with her body.

This comes the day after police arrested her boyfriend Fotis Dulos on another charge of tampering with evidence.

A formal press release containing criminal charges, bond and booking photo will be released later Wednesday afternoon once Dulos has been processed, state police say in the statement. That's where police say a physical assault occurred in the garage.

Troconis allegedly told police in an August 13 interview that she had not seen Dulos on the morning of May 24, contradicting prior statements, and revealed that she was with Fotis Dulos when he cleaned "spilled coffee" out of a truck he was driving that morning.

According to the newly-released arrest warrant, police asked Troconis why she thought Fotis Dulos had the truck cleaned, and she said, "Well obviously. all the evidence says because. you showed me the picture of the blood in the door it's because the body of Jennifer at some point was in there".

Images in the new arrest warrant show a vehicle believed to be Dulos' employee's truck parked about 100 feet from where the missing woman's Suburban was later found abandoned.

Jennifer Dulos, a New Canaan mom of five, has been missing since May 24, the Friday headed into Memorial Day weekend.

Dulos was charged for a second time with tampering with evidence in the case of his missing wife, Jennifer Farber Dulos, who is suspected dead.

"It sounds like the state is trying to convince itself that Fotis is responsible for Jennifer's disappearance", Norman Pattis said in a statement.

Here in New Canaan, where residents have rallied around Jennifer Dulos and her family, investigators have received hundreds of tips and responses to a call for video surveillance from homes or businesses, the New Canaan police chief has said. When and if the state decides it can prove its case, we will welcome the chance to meet the case in open court.

Fotis Dulos stands during a hearing at Stamford Superior Court in June. "When do we get the chance to question these folks?"

CNN has reached out to the attorney for Michelle Troconis for comment.

"It's an exhausting fight", Fotis Dulos told reporters on Wednesday evening. Detectives later recovered clothing and household goods from trash receptacles with Jennifer Dulos' blood on them.

Fotis Dulos leaves the Troop G State Police barracks with his attorney Norm Pattis Wednesday, after posting a $500,000 bond. "We will plead not guilty to these charges next week in Norwalk".
