The search for a missing Connecticut mother of five, Jennifer Dulos, continues as her estranged husband and his girlfriend face a judge in court over suspicions about their connections to the case.

The couple was also accused of tampering their license plate in order to avoid being tracked down as they travelled around town.

Fotis Dulos and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, arrived to the court separately, with both of them handcuffed and wearing orange suits, to plead their cases and discuss bail, if any.

Dulos is expected to post $500,000 bond in the next day or so and will have to relinquish his passport. He will also be placed on GPS monitoring.

As the story gained national attention on social media and in the news, law enforcement officials dove deeply into the case, searching multiple locations within the state and in surrounding areas. Police concluded that she was last seen dropping her kids off at New Canaan Country School in the morning. Later that night, her car was found empty near Waveny Park.


Family members have come out to say that Jennifer Dulos would never just disappear on her own. As the case went on, court documents found that Dulos and his to-be ex-wife were in the midst of a bitter and complicated divorce and custody battle for their shared kids who range from ages 8 to 13 years. In documents dating back to 2017, Jennifer said on record, “I am afraid of my husband. I know that filing for divorce and filing this motion will enrage him. I know he will retaliate by trying to harm me in some way.”

Jennifer Dulos went missing on May 24. Her children have since been in the care of their maternal grandmother who lives in Manhattan while the search for their other continues.
