About five years ago, a mom named Jennifer Dulos from Connecticut disappeared. Recently, her husband’s ex-girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, was found guilty of planning to harm her. Troconis was also found guilty of messing with evidence related to the case.

Troconis used to date Jennifer’s husband, Fotis Dulos. Fotis was accused of murdering Jennifer but killed himself in January 2020 before the trial. Troconis got charged with plotting murder in 2020 and other crimes, but she said she didn’t do it.

The decision came after six jurors listened to the state prosecutor and defense attorney for about two hours in a Stamford Superior Courtroom. Jennifer went missing in May 2019 after dropping off her kids at school. She was in a tough divorce and custody fight with Fotis at that time.

Even though they never found Jennifer’s body, a Connecticut judge officially declared her dead in October 2023. The state’s chief medical examiner thinks she likely had serious injuries.

Officials found something that looked like blood in three spots on her parked car in New Canaan. Her DNA was also on these spots and on the garage wall and door.

Both Fotis Dulos and Troconis were arrested before for messing with evidence related to her disappearance. They said they didn’t do it after investigators found a substance like blood with her DNA in a truck he used the day she vanished.

Jennifer Dulos had told officials she was scared of him before she disappeared, according to court papers CNN got.

Troconis’ lawyer, Jon Schoenhorn, said she was really upset about the decision.

Her family said it was a big mistake, and they’re going to keep proving she’s innocent.

They hope the decision gets people interested in the case again and helps find Dulos’ body.

Carrie Luft, speaking for Dulos’ family and friends, said the decision is important, but the most crucial thing is still finding her body.

A judge in Connecticut set Troconis’ bond at $6 million in cash, with the condition of being at home and monitored electronically if she pays the bond.

She’ll be sentenced on May 31.
