Judge ends supervision for Michelle Traconis; facing new charges
Traconis has been charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit tampering with evidence.

HARTFORD, Connecticut (WABC) -- There's new details in the disappearance and murder of Connecticut mother Jennifer Dulos.

On Friday, a judge ended supervision for Michelle Troconis, the former girlfriend of the late Fotis Dulos who died by suicide back in January.

However, Traconis has also been charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit tampering with evidence.

Troconis is due back in court on October 1.

Troconis, Fotis Dulos' former girlfriend, is currently free on $2 million bond but is required to wear a GPS tracking device.

Prosecutors claim Troconis and Fotis Dulos conspired to kill his wife Jennifer, the mother of his five children.

Fotis died by suicide in January.

Earlier this week, police said surveillance video shows Fotis Dulos dumping garbage bags out of his truck into trash cans in Hartford -- the same day his estranged wife Jennifer Dulos disappeared last year.

The video is part of evidence in a court filing.

Police later recovered the bags which they say included cleaning supplies and clothing stained with blood.

New video also showed Troconis inside a police interrogation room last August being asked about evidence following the disappearance of Dulos.

In one video, Troconis, is asked about a stained paper towel he handed her after cleaning out a truck police believe was used to move the victim's body.

Troconis is charged with conspiracy to commit murder in Dulos' disappearance.
