Authorities say the estranged husband of a missing CT mother of five has been arrested again in connection with her disappearance.

State Police said, "It is our understanding that Michelle Troconis has made arraignments to turn herself into State Police investigators".

Connecticut State Police arrested Dulos around 2:30 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 4, at his home in of Farmington, Connecticut. Once a press release has been generated and approved, we will send it out.

Her statements moving forward provided evidence that resulted in the new charge against Fotis Dulos, police said. Dulos' attorney joined his client shortly thereafter and told investigators that he and his client were leaving and would not provide an interview to police, according to the warrant.

Fotis Dulos, 51, was taken into custody at his home in Farmington on Wednesday afternoon and is facing an additional tampering with evidence charge.

The warrant reveals that police believe that Fotis Dulos killed his wife in the garage of her home on 69 Welles Lane, sometime between 8:05 a.m. and 10:25 a.m., on Friday, May 24, cleaned up the mess, put her body in her vehicle and disposed of the body and the bloody items somewhere along the way.

Jennifer vanished on May 24 as the couple were battling it out in court over their divorce and custody of their five children.

Fotis Dulos was charged with an additional count of tampering with or fabricating evidence related to the disappearance of his wife, Jennifer Dulos.

A mother of five children aged eight to 13, Jennifer Dulos went missing on May 24 after dropping her kids off at school in New Canaan. She also admitted it did not smell like coffee.

Troconis allegedly told police she believed he had his truck washed because the body of his wife was "at some point" in there.

In a statement Pattis sent to News 12, he says, "It is hard to see why the state waited for months to serve this warrant".

Last week, New Canaan's highest elected official, First Selectman Kevin Moynihan issued a statement assuring the family and friends of Jennifer "that the townspeople of New Canaan are keeping Jennifer and her family in our hearts and that we remain committed to seeking justice for Jennifer".

Both have pleaded not guilty and are free on $500,000 bail. "The state is a terrifying enemy, but a clean conscience is a powerful ally".

Dulos posted $500,000 bail on the new charge Wednesday, according to the warrant, and is scheduled to be back in court on this new charge on September 12. The business relied heavily on loans from Jennifer Dulos' father, who contributed millions to help Fotis buy properties, with sale proceeds used to pay off debts.
