ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont judge says a couple charged with killing a popular St. Johnsbury teacher must keep their lawyers.

The judge made the ruling Tuesday after Patricia and Allen Prue appeared separately in court in St. Johnsbury and asked for new lawyers.

Patricia Prue told the judge that her lawyer, Marc Eagle, doesn't seem to have a defense for her.

Allen Prue says he feels his lawyer, Dan Maguire, doesn't keep him informed about the case.

Judge Mary Miles Teachout denied both requests.

The Prues have pleaded not guilty to charges they lured 33-year-old Melissa Jenkins from her Danville home in March 2012, killed her and then dumped her body in the Connecticut River.

Patricia Prue is due to go on trial this summer; Allen Prue early next year.
