NEW YORK (1010 WINS) —Lab tests found the blood of missing Connecticut mother of five Jennifer Dulos mixed with DNA from Dulos's estranged husband on her kitchen faucet, prosecutors revealed Tuesday.

Dulos has been missing for over two weeks.

Her estranged husband, Folio Dulos, and his girlfriend, 44-year-old Michelle Troconis, pleaded not guilty to charges of evidence tampering and hindering prosecution.

Prosecutors asked that Dulos' bond be increased to $850,000 citing the new forensic evidence.

Last week court documents revealed that police had discovered blood in Dulos' garage and said that she had likely been victim to a "serious physical assault."

Video footage allegedly showed the defendants' pick up truck stopping 30 times along a four-mile stretch to allegedly dump garbage.

Prosecutors also claims that Folio Dulos appeared at Jennifer Dulos' home two days before her disappearance, but did not go inside, allegedly telling people he did not want his DNA found at the scene.

The judge denied the prosecutors' request and kept Dulos' bond at $500,000.

Troconis' next court appearance is in July while Dulos' is in August.

Jennifer Dulos was last seen on Friday May 24, dropping off her children at school.

Police have been searching throughout the state for her, while her five children stay with her mother in Manhattan.
