NEW CANAAN, Conn. — Police arrested a man and a woman late Saturday and charged them in connection to the disappearance of a Connecticut mom who's been missing for more than a week.

Mother of five Jennifer Dulos, 50, went missing on May 24 after she dropped her kids off at school

Police charged estranged husband Fotis Dulos, 51, and Michelle C. Troconis, his 44-year-old girlfriend, with tampering with or fabricating physical evidence. They were also charged with hindering the prosecution.

Details of the allegations were not released.

They were arrested after police obtained a search warrant for Dulos' home. Fotis and Jennifer Doulos had been locked in a bitter divorce and contentious custody battle for two years. In 2017, the mother of five said in court papers that she was “terrified for her family’s safety, especially since discovering the gun, since my husband has a history of controlling, volatile and delusional behavior.”

Dulos he is being held on $500,000 bond. He is expected to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on June 3. Troconis is being held on $500,000 bond. She is also expected to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on June 3.
