BRIDGEPORT — Michelle Troconis has turned herself in at Troop G to face additional charges in the Jennifer Dulos case Thursday afternoon.
Troconis and her lawyer, Andrew Bowman, were seen going into Troop G on Prospect Street in Bridgeport around 1:30 p.m. They declined comment as they entered the building.
State Police said Troconis had made arrangements to face an additional charges.
Fotis Dulos, 52, and Troconis, 44, have pleaded not guilty to hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence charges in connection with Jennifer Dulos’ disappearance.
Troconis is expected to face an addition charge of tampering with evidence as Fotis Dulos was arrested for on Wednesday. The charge against Fotis Dulos was related to his role in cleaning up a red Toyota pickup truck belonging to one of his workers that police believe was used in connection with his wife’s disappearance, the warrant said.
State police arrested Fotis Dulos Wednesday afternoon at his Farmington home, while Troconis made arrangements to turn herself in on Thursday.
“Our hearts go out to Ms Troconis,” Fotis Dulos’ defense attorney Norm Pattis said Thursday. “We are confident that she will, in the end, tell the truth at trial. The state is a terrifying enemy, but a clean conscience is a powerful ally.”
Troconis met with investigators for a third time on Aug. 13 and admitted that “she had not been truthful” in her prior two interviews.
According to Fotis Dulos’ recent arrest warrant, Troconis told police that she did not physically see Fotis Dulos when she woke up around 6:40 a.m. on the Friday that Jennifer Dulos went missing. She had previously told police that the two of them had shared a shower that morning.
On June 3, two days after Fotis Dulos and Troconis were arrested, state police said they found handwritten notes inside their Jefferson Crossing home in Farmington. The notes, found in Fotis Dulos’ home office for his real estate development company, Fore Group, specified times and activities he and Troconis were apparently doing on May 24 and May 24, according to the latest arrest warrant.
Pages included specific activities and times, incoming and outgoing phone calls, the warrant said.
Notes included information, later that police said was later proven to be inaccurate, and alibi witnesses, who were determined to be false, the warrant said.
