Trial for couple accused of killing a teacher in 2012 to be moved


ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt., - A judge has ruled that the couple accused with killing a prep school teacher, will stand trial in a different county.

According to Vermont officials, the case against Patricia and Allen Prue will be moved to another location. However, Superior Court Judge Robert Bent says the location will not be announced until after the pretrial proceedings in St. Johnsbury.

The Prue's were charged in connection with the killing of a Vermont prep school teacher back in 2012.

Court documents say 30-year-old Allen Prue and his 33-year-old wife Patricia Prue, of Waterford, lured 33-year-old Melissa Jenkins from her home by pretending their vehicle had broken down and they needed help, and then strangled her before throwing her body in a river.

Jenkins was a 33-year-old single-mother and a beloved St. Johnsbury Academy science teacher. Her 2-year-old son was found alone in her idling SUV not far from her home on Sunday, and her body was later found on Monday.
