Chief State’s Attorney Richard Colangelo filed charges of second-degree hindering prosecution, tampering with physical evidence and conspiracy to commit tampering with physical evidence against Troconis, the ex-girlfriend of Fotis Dulos ahead of her appearance in court, the report adds.

The new charges are related to surveillance footage evidence that prosecutors claim shows Dulos and Troconis disposing of items along Albany Avenue in Hartford, the same day Jennifer went missing.

Jennifer, Fotis’ estranged wife and mother of their five children has been missing for over a year and was last seen in New Canaan on May 24, 2019 after she dropped her children at school in New Canaan.

The videos allegedly show Fotis throwing out trash bags that contained a shirt he wore the day of her disappearance and other items that had her blood on them, according to the Hartford Courant.

In another recording, a woman resembling Troconis gets out of the passenger side of Fotis’ pickup truck and then him allegedly throwing away a package containing old license plates in a storm drain, according to the New York Post.

Troconis' lawyer Jon Schoenhorn said the videos, made public as part of court filings earlier this week, don’t prove his client was involved in any crime.

Fotis Dulos was charged with Jennifer Dulos' murder and died in January just days after an apparent suicide attempt at his Farmington home.

Troconis was charged with conspiracy to commit murder charges in the disappearance of Jennifer Dulos. She pleaded not guilty to all previous charges filed against her.

Currently, Troconis is free on a $2.1 million bond and made a court appearance on Friday.

The Judge decided she was no longer required to call her probation officer before leaving her house but will still be under curfew and must continue wearing an ankle and wrist bracelet with GPS monitoring, the Hartford Courant reported.
