A Vermont man charged with killing a St. Johnsbury Academy science teacher last year is unhappy with his new court-appointed lawyer. Allen Prue pleaded not guilty to charges that he killed Melissa Jenkins in March 2012. Prosecutors said he and his wife, Patricia Prue, lured Jenkins from her Danville home, strangled her, and dumped her body in the Connecticut River. The Caledonian Record reported that Prue, 31, who is being held without bail, filed a motion to Judge Robert Bent on Nov. 10 complaining that his lawyer, Robert Katims of Burlington, had not returned his calls or letters. A call to Katims was not returned Tuesday.
