    Murder suspect

    faces new charge

    MONTPELIER — Vermont police say the woman charged with killing a St. Johnsbury Academy teacher is now facing charges she tried to send a letter to her husband, who is also charged in the teacher’s death.

    Conditions of release imposed on 35-year-old Patricia Prue by a judge prohibit contact with her husband Allen Prue.

    Police said Vermont Department of Corrections officials twice in December intercepted mail sent by Patricia Prue to a third party asking for help getting letters to her husband.

    Both are charged with the 2012 killing of Melissa Jenkins. Jenkins’ body was found naked, strangled and beaten in the Connecticut River. Allen Prue and Patricia Prue both have pleaded not guilty.

    They are both in prison awaiting trial.
