ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - The couple accused of killing a Vermont prep school teacher has waived a court hearing that would have reviewed their bail status.
Allen and Patricia Prue were ordered held without bail in the March 25 death of Melissa Jenkins. They have been charged with killing Jenkins after luring her from her St. Johnsbury home with a ruse about a broken down car.
The Prues have pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and improper disposal of a body.
The Burlington Free Press reports a judge in St. Johnsbury scheduled for Friday and later canceled a bail review hearing. Mark Eagle, Patricia Prue's attorney, declined to comment on his decision to forgo the hearing. He said he has no plans to ask the court at a later date to review bail.
