Police find unexamined evidence from couple's home in teacher death case

Share/Save/Bookmark

ST. JOHNSBURY, Vermont — Police say they've found unexamined evidence in the case of a Vermont couple charged in the killing of a popular Vermont teacher.

Allen and Patricia Prue face kidnapping and first-degree murder charges in the March 2012 death of Melissa Jenkins. Police allege the Prues lured Jenkins from her home, then killed her. They've pleaded not guilty.

The Caledonian Record reports (http://bit.ly/1kszjfo) the items, which include a hard drive, memory cards and 8 mm video cassettes seized from the Prues' home, were found at the St. Johnsbury state police barracks. The state forensic lab hadn't evaluated them yet.

A judge approved a warrant to examine them.

Allen Prue's lawyer, Robert Katims, said it seemed "rather late in the game" to be analyzing items that the state has had for a while.
