The attorney for a Vermont man charged with his wife in the killing of a popular St. Johnsbury teacher said it is likely that he will ask that the trial be moved out of Caledonia County. Defense attorney Dan Maguire made the comment in court Thursday as part of a status conference on the pending trial of Allen and Patricia Prue. The Prues are charged with luring Melissa Jenkins from her Danville home on March 25, 2012, beating and strangling her and dumping her body in the Connecticut River. Allen Prue, 31, has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder. Patricia Prue, 34, pleaded not guilty to a charge of aggravated murder.
