Her black Chevrolet Suburban was located near Waveny Park in New Canaan later that day, according to police.However, the family is counting their blessings as the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, “in spite of this tragedy,” family spokeswoman Carrie Luft said in a statement.“We give thanks that Jennifer’s children are healthy and well.

They both pleaded not guilty to the charge.In September, Fotis Dulos and Troconis were slapped with a second charge of tampering with evidence in September, in which they pleaded not guilty again.In late October, the Hartford Courant reported that Troconis moved her belongings out of the home in Farmington, Connecticut, that she shared with Fotis Dulos.Jennifer Dulos’ mother, Gloria Farber, has custody of the Dulos’ five children.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
