ST. JOHNSBURY — A woman charged with her husband in the killing of a Vermont teacher wants her trial moved out of Caledonia County.
A lawyer for Patricia Prue says extensive media coverage of the case makes it highly unlikely for her to get a fair trial in her home county.
Patricia and Allen Prue are charged with killing 33-year-old Melissa Jenkins of St. Johnsbury and dumping her body in the Connecticut River in March.
Thirty-three-year-old Patricia Prue faces a charge of aggravated murder, accusing her of killing Jenkins during a sexual assault or attempted sexual assault. Thirty-year-old Allen Prue is charged with first-degree murder. Both have pleaded not guilty.
No trial dates have been set for the Prues.
