STAMFORD, CT (WFSB) -- The girlfriend of an estranged husband of a missing New Canaan mother whose disappearance sparked national attention arrived at court on Monday.

However, Michelle Troconis faced a judge Monday morning and saw her case continued until Sept. 20.

More than two months have passed since anyone last saw missing New Canaan mother-of-five, Jennifer Dulos since she was last known to be dropping her children off at school on May 24.

While the case remains active, her estranged husband, Fotis Dulos and his girlfriend, Troconis, were charged with hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence on the weekend after Dulos’ disappearance.

Police believe the pair resembled a man and woman seen on camera surveillance discarding items that police said may have been bags along Albany Avenue along the Hartford's north end the day Jennifer Dulos went missing.

Sources confirmed to Channel 3 that Jennifer Dulos’ "Vineyard Vines" t-shirt she was wearing the day she went missing was stained with her blood and was found during a search of the trash can containers.

However, the defense team for Dulos said earlier this month that its objective is to cast enough doubt on the state’s case in hopes of never facing a murder charge.

State police said they worked around the clock for weeks at a trash to energy plant in Hartford combing for evidence.

As for the Dulos children, Jennifer Dulos’ mother received temporary custody of the children who remain in her New York City home.

Fotis Dulos is expected to appear in court on Sept. 13.
