Three videos released Monday show a police interview with Michelle Troconis and what appears to be Fotis Dulos dumping garbage bags from a black truck into trash cans the same day his wife, Jennifer Dulos, disappeared.
The videos and other pieces of evidence were part of a court filing by Troconis' attorney, Jon Schoenhorn. He's expected to argue during her hearing Friday to relax the nonfinancial conditions of her bond release.
Schoenhorn believes the reason Troconis is under house arrest and required to wear a GPS ankle monitor is because police exaggerated the evidence against her.
One video shows Fotis Dulos outside of a mini mart in Hartford throwing out garbage bags. He is seen returning to the truck, removing a car floor mat and leaving it by the side of the building after he threw out the garbage bag.
Police say they never recovered the mat, but they believe it came from his estranged wife's Chevy Suburban, which was found abandoned on May 24 of last year.
The footage was recorded several hours after Jennifer Dulos disappeared. It's one of several pieces of evidence police used to arrest Dulos and his then-girlfriend, Troconis, in connection with Jennifer Dulos' murder.
Another video, from the same stretch of time on Albany Avenue, shows Fotis Dulos stopping his truck again to throw another garbage bag away. Troconis is then seen leaning out of the truck and wiping her hand on the ground.
Like the first video, she's not seen throwing anything away.
Police later recovered the garbage bags, which included cleaning supplies and clothing stained with Jennifer Dulos' blood. Troconis' attorney contends she's not the one who disposed of evidence.
Police say Troconis' DNA, along with Fotis Dulos', was recovered from the bags.
In an interview with investigators, Troconis told police she saw Fotis Dulos cleaning a truck he borrowed from an employee the day Jennifer Dulos disappeared. He told her that he spilled coffee in it, then gave her paper towels to put in a trash bag.
Police believe Fotis Dulos was cleaning up any trace of Jennifer Dulos' blood. The car seat later tested positive for her blood.
On Friday, Schoenhorn will ask the judge to remove Troconis' GPS ankle monitor, end her house arrest and allow her to travel within the United States.
