Troconis’ attorney requests access to prosecutors’ evidence at Dulos case hearing

STAMFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Michelle Troconis, suspect in the case of missing New Canaan mom, Jennifer Farber Dulos, faced a judge Tuesday morning in a virtual court appearance.

She is facing conspiracy to commit murder and obstruction of justice charges in the case.

We are inching towards the trial in this case. Troconis remains free on bond, but she had her video off during most of the hearing.

During the hearing, her attorney argued for access to evidence including surveillance video of a person on a bike that state police cited in their arrest warrants against Fotis Dulos and Troconis. Attorney Jon Schoenhorn also asked for photos of what he said was a strip search done on Troconis, saying he is concerned those photos were never turned over by police. Prosecutors agreed.

Next, Schoenhorn argued for document access to a custody evaluation done by a psychologist of Jenner Farber Dulos

Trump campaign requests recount of Georgia’s presidential race

President Donald Trump’s campaign requested a recount of votes in the Georgia presidential race on Saturday, a day after state officials certified results showing Democrat Joe Biden won the state, as his legal team presses forward with attacks alleging widespread fraud without proof.

Georgia’s results showed Biden beating Trump by 12,670 votes out of about 5 million cast, or 0.25%. State law allows a candidate to request a recount if the margin is less than 0.5%. Republican Gov. Brian Kemp formalized the state’s slate of 16 presidential electors.

The Trump campaign sent a hand-delivered letter to the secretary of state’s office requesting the recount in an election that has been fraught with unfounded accusations of fraud by Trump and his supporters.

Trump campaign requests recount of hand-recounted results in Georgia, which is unlikely to change outcome

Election officials are now set to rescan the ballots that they reviewed during the hand recount. The rescanning of ballots through counting machines likely will take less time than the week-long audit, which was the largest of its kind in U.S. history in terms of ballots manually recounted. Officials across the state had anticipated Trump’s request and have been preparing equipment and staff to respond accordingly.

But the machine recount likely will in some ways pose greater logistical and financial challenges to county election officials, who been laboring virtually nonstop since the Nov. 3 election amid challenging circumstances including the coronavirus. In addition, local and state elections officials are busy preparing for upcoming special elections, including the two U.S. Senate runoff elections in January.
