The estranged husband of the missing Connecticut mother Jennifer Dulos insists that he have an alibi for his whereabouts on the morning she disappeared.
The new Canaan, mother of five Jennifer Dulos, disappeared on May 24 after dropping her children off at school.
Her husband, Fotis Dulos, 51, and his girlfriend Michelle Troconis, 44, have been accused of manipulation evidence and prevent prosecution in the case. They have not pleaded guilty and are on bail.
Dulos, however, insists that Troconis has an alibi to explain where he was that morning and her testimony can support his defense.

On Thursday, Fotis' lawyer issued a plea in favor of dropping charges against Troconis, so that she can testify in his defense

His lawyer Norm Pattis urged the state to drop the charges against Michelle so that she can testify in the defense of Fotis.
& # 39; Michelle offers Fotis a complete alibi for the morning of Mrs. Dulos's disappearance. However, she is unlikely to testify as long as the government presses her creditable claims against her, & Pattis said in a statement on Thursday.
& # 39; We call on the state to drop the charges against Michelle so that she can testify in the defense of Fotis. We ask that the charges against her be dropped so that she feels free to testify without fear of the consequences, & Pattis added.
A lawyer from Troconis filed a request to ask Dulos not to contact her on Tuesday, because Fotis's lawyer made comments to protect his client at Troconis' expense.

In the evening of May 24, police said they had surveillance images of the Ford Raptor driven by a man similar to Fotis Dulos, with a woman similar to Michelle Troconis in the passenger seat.
Dulos is said to have dropped at least two garbage bags filled with bloody clothes, towels, and sponges into garbage bins on Albany Avenue in Hartford, Connecticut.
The police grabbed those things and found that the blood matched Jennifer Dulos.
In her house, the police discovered what they considered blood and thought he was considered a missing person. Researchers were the victims of a & # 39; serious physical attack & # 39 ;.
Jennifer and Fotis underwent a controversial divorce and custody case at the time of her disappearance, where she had claimed in the court case that she and her children were afraid of her husband.

Although Dulos and Troconis have no band, they must wear a GPS monitoring device and remain in the state of Connecticut.
On Monday, Dulos theorized that Jennifer might have staged her disappearance as the character in the book Gone Girl, adding that she had a & # 39; very dark 500-page plus novel & # 39; wrote.
However, a spokesperson for Jennifer's & # 39; s family disputed the account as & # 39; false and irresponsible allegations & # 39 ;, adding that the book that Jennifer wrote was completed for Gone Girl and not a mystery.
& # 39; Research shows that Jennifer was the victim of a violent attack in her home in New Canaan. As of today, she has been missing for a month, & her family and friends said in a statement released on Monday.
& # 39; This is not a fiction or a movie. This is real life, as experienced every day by Jennifer's five young children, her family and her friends. We are deeply sad. Jennifer is not here to protect her children, and these false and irresponsible accusations hurt the children now and in the future, & the family added.
Troconis must return to the courtroom on July 18 and Fotis Dulos on August 2.
