Two people have been arrested in connection to the disappearance of New Canaan mother Jennifer Dulos.
Police say Dulos's estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, was arrested Saturday night and charged with tampering with physical evidence and hindering prosecution.
Fotis Dulos's girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, was also charged with tampering with physical evidence and hindering prosecution.
Court documents show a contentious two-year divorce and custody battle between the estranged couple.
Fotis Dulos was taken to Bridgeport Correctional Center where he is being held on $500,000 bond. He is due in court Monday.
Troconis is being held on $500,000 bond at New Canaan Police Headquarters. She will also appear in court Monday.
Police say additional charges are expected in the case.
Police say Jennifer Dulos has not been located at this time and the investigation is "active and ongoing."
Dulos, a 50-year-old mother of five, was reported missing on May 24. Her car was found at Waveny Park last Friday.
Police had previously expanded their investigation to the Hartford area.
