9 Days After Conn. Mom Went Missing, Her Estranged Husband and His Girlfriend Are Arrested
Two people have been arrested in Connecticut in connection with the disappearance of a still-missing 50-year-old mother of five, who was last seen 10 days ago.
Fotis Dulos, 51, and his girlfriend, 44-year-old Michelle Troconis, were arrested Sunday and charged with fabricating or tampering with evidence and hindering prosecution.
PEOPLE confirms Dulos and Troconis are expected to appear in court later today.
Meanwhile, the search for Dulos’ estranged wife, Jennifer Dulos, continued Monday, with teams of investigators combing wooded areas along the Merritt Parkway.
Jennifer Dulos disappeared amidst a reported custody battle with her husband, who owns a construction company.
Dulos and Troconis were detained at a hotel Saturday night after authorities searched his Farmington mansion. A DNA sample was also taken from Dulos, as New Canaan police confirmed over the weekend.
They were being held on $500,000 bond, and PEOPLE was unable to determine if they had retained lawyers who could comment on the allegations.
Jennifer was living in New Canaan, Connecticut, where authorities allegedly found traces of blood evidence last week.
She was last seen 10 days ago, dropping her five children off at school.
Hours later, her empty SUV was recovered from a park in New Canaan.
