Woman charged in Connecticut missing mom case heads back to court
STAMFORD (AP) — A woman charged in the disappearance of a 50-year-old Connecticut mother of five is headed back to court today.
Michelle Troconis has pleaded not guilty to evidence tampering and hindering prosecution in connection with the May 24 disappearance of New Canaan resident Jennifer Dulos.
The 44-year-old Troconis is the girlfriend of Dulos' estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, who has pleaded not guilty to the same charges.
Both are free on $500,000 bond.
Prosecutors say the pair disposed of garbage bags in Hartford containing items that had Jennifer Dulos' blood on them.
Fotis and Jennifer Dulos had been involved in almost two years of contentious divorce proceedings when the New Canaan mother vanished.
Troconis has met with investigators and a judge has prohibited Fotis Dulos and his attorneys from contacting her.
