ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont man charged along with his wife in the killing of a popular St. Johnsbury teacher isn't getting a new lawyer at the moment.

A judge initially dismissed Allen and Patricia Prue's requests for new attorneys in May. Allen made a second request. The judge says she wants more information and another hearing first.

The Caledonian Record reports Prue and defense lawyer Dan Maguire said Thursday that Prue no longer communicates with Maguire, and that Maguire could be called as a witness against Patricia Prue.

The Prues have been charged with luring Melissa Jenkins out of her home last year and killing her before dumping her body in the Connecticut River. Both have pleaded not guilty, Allen Prue to first-degree murder; Patricia Prue to aggravated murder.
