A Greek-American man and his girlfriend were arrested on Sunday in the Connecticut town of New Canaan over the disappearance of his wife, who is the mother of five.

Fotis Dulos, 51, and Michelle Troconis, 44, charged with tampering with evidence and hindering prosecution, were detained on $500,000 bail and are scheduled to be arraigned on June 3 in Norwalk Superior Court.

Jennifer Dulos, who disappeared during the couple’s bitter divorce and custody battle, was last seen on May 24 after dropping off her children, ages 8-13, at a private school.

Police have already searched locations in several towns, including a park in New Canaan where her vehicle was found. The case has not been classified as a homicide although The Hartford Courant reported earlier that blood was found in the missing woman’s home, with police believing there had been violence there.

In one of the nearly 500 filings in their divorce battle, Jennifer Dulos wrote “I am terrified for my family’s safety, especially since discovering the gun, as my husband has a history of controlling, volatile and delusional behavior.” She also accused her husband of thirteen years of threatening to kidnap their children and take them to Greece.

Fotis Dulos said he turned in his handgun to the Farmington police, and he accused his wife of actually being the unfit parent. He also accused her of having mental health problems, as well as shouting at him and calling him names in front of guests, according to a report from Fox News.
