Patricia Prue provides DNAApril 25,2012
ST. JOHNSBURY — Court records say a woman charged in the killing of a prep school teacher has provided DNA samples to police.
The Caledonian-Record reports the samples were obtained from Patricia Prue at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Center on April 18. A judge had denied her lawyer’s motion to dismiss the request for DNA collection.
The 33-year-old Prue and her husband, 30-year-old Allen Prue, of Waterford, are charged with second-degree murder and unauthorized disposal of a body in the March 28 killing of Melissa Jenkins, of St. Johnsbury.
Police say Allen Prue, who used to plow Jenkins’ driveway, told investigators that he and his wife lured her out of her home with a story about a broken-down car and he strangled her. Patricia Prue has denied being involved.
