A man charged with killing a prep school teacher will not testify against his wife, and the inability to question him should render comments he made to police inadmissible, her lawyer said. The lawyer for Patricia Prue filed a motion in Caledonia Superior Court asking the court to throw out statements that Allen Prue made to investigators unless he testifies at her upcoming trial. Marc Eagle, Sheila Prue’s attorney, said the defense should have an opportunity to question her husband about statements he made to police. Patricia Prue, 34, and Allen Prue, 31, have both pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from the March 2012 abduction and slaying of Melissa Jenkins, a St. Johnsbury Academy science teacher.
