Vt. AG to meet with prosecutor in Melissa Jenkins death

Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Lawyers from the Vermont Attorney General's office are planning to meet with the state's attorney prosecuting the husband and wife charged with killing a popular St. Johnsbury prep school teacher.

Attorney General William Sorrell said Wednesday it's not unusual for his office to work with local prosecutors in the most serious cases.

Last week 30-year-old Allen Prue and his 33-year-old wife Patricia Prue of Waterford were charged with second-degree murder in the March 25 killing of 33-year-old Melissa Jenkins of St. Johnsbury. They have both pleaded not guilty.

Prosecutors say the Prues lured Jenkins from her home and then killed her. Jenkins' 2-year-old son was found sleeping in her car and apparently witnessed his mother's killing.

Jenkins' body was found on March 26 in the Connecticut River.
