The girlfriend of Fotis Dulos, the estranged husband in the Jennifer Farber Dulos missing person case, has turned herself in to Connecticut State Police to face additional charges in connection, state police confirmed.

Michelle Troconis, who was arrested in June on charges of evidence tampering and hindering prosecution, turned herself in around 1:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 5, at Troop G in Bridgeport, state police said.

A state police spokesman said additional information regarding the charges would be released later Thursday. 

Fotis Dulos was arrested for a second time on Wednesday, Sept. 4, on a single charge of tampering with physical evidence. He bonded out on an additional $500,000 bond. 

Jennifer Dulos, 50, was last seen on Friday, May 24, after dropping her five children off at school. Her 2017 black Chevrolet Suburban was later found on Lapham Road later that day. 

According to an arrest warrant for Fotis Dulos, Troconis has been interviewed three times by investigators from the New Canaan Police and the state police and was less than truthful during two of the interviews. 

During a third interview, she admitted that she had lied about parts of her story, the warrant said.

In the arrest warrant, Troconis told police she saw Fotis Dulos on the afternoon of Friday, May 24 cleaning what he said was a "coffee spill" in a red Toyota Tacoma that belonged to his project manager. 

Although she said she couldn't remember the color of the stain towels, she told police it didn't smell like coffee.

During the interview, Troconis also identified herself and Fotis Dulos on surveillance video as Fotis allegedly dumped black garbage bags into trash containers in the Hartford area with items that were later found to contain the blood of Jennifer Dulos. 

In the warrant, Troconis claimed that she had been talking on her cellphone and didn't know what he was doing.

Troconis, who lived with Fotis Dulos with her daughter until his wife's disappearance, also revealed that she had not been truthful about following her boyfriend to a car wash to have "the truck" detailed, days after the disappearance. 

During the interview, Troconis was asked by investigators why she thought Dulos was washing the car, and according to the warrant, she replied: "Well obviously...all the evidence says showed me the picture of the blood in the door, it's because the body of Jennifer at some point was in there."
