NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The girlfriend of Fotis Dulos, the estranged husband of missing Connecticut mom Jennifer Dulos, turned herself into Connecticut police Thursday in connection to Jennifer Dulos' disappearance, just one day after Fotis Dulos was arrested. 

Michelle Troconis, 44, turned herself in to state police on Thursday.

According to court documents, on Aug. 13, Troconis admitted to state troopers that her first two interviews with them were untruthful and she was ready to be fully truthful.

Her statements later offered evidence that led to the added charge of tampering with evidence against Fotis Dulos

The charges against Troconis are not currently known, but they are expected to be related to those statements.

Fotis Dulos was arrested Wednesday and charged with tampering with evidence. He posted $500,000 bond and is expected in court Sept. 12. 

Jennifer Dulos went missing May 24 after dropping her kids off at school and missing appointments that day. She has not been found. She and Fotis Dulos have been embroiled in a contentious divorce and child custody case for the past two years. Their children range in age from 8 to 13 and include two sets of twins.

Police have searched locations in several towns including a park in New Canaan where Jennifer Dulos' vehicle was found and the Hartford suburb home in Farmington.

Jennifer Dulos is the daughter of the late Hilliard Farber, who ran Chase Manhattan Bank's bond trading desk before founding his own brokerage firm in 1975.

Fotis Dulos is a developer of expensive homes who borrowed money from his wife's parents to buy properties, according to a lawsuit filed against Fotis Dulos by Jennifer Dulos' mother, Gloria Farber. The lawsuit in Connecticut state court claims Fotis Dulos has failed to repay Gloria Farber about $1.7 million in loans given to him.

Court documents filed in the divorce case say Jennifer Dulos feared Fotis Dulos would harm her in some way in retaliation for her filing for divorce, and she noted he had a gun. Jennifer Dulos has primary custody of the children, with their father getting to see them every other weekend.

After Jennifer Dulos went missing, Fotis Dulos asked the divorce case judge to grant him custody of the children.
