    ST. JOHNSBURY - New charges have been filed against a couple accused of killing a St. Johnsbury teacher.

    Allen and Patricia Prue already face murder charges in connection with the March 2012 death of 33-year-old Melissa Jenkins. Both have pleaded not guilty.

    The Caledonian Record reported that the charges of conspiracy to commit murder and kidnapping were filed against the Prues last week by Caledonia County State's Attorney Lisa Warren.

    Prosecutors also filed eight counts of possession of child pornography against Patricia Prue after finding multiple images on her laptop computer.

    The Prues are accused of luring Jenkins from her Danville home, strangling her and dumping her body in the Connecticut River. Jenkins' vehicle was found idling with her 2-year-old son inside.
