BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The part-time snowplow driver charged with killing a St. Johnsbury teacher tearfully apologized to the victim during a police interview, saying: “I don’t know what I did.”

Allen Prue and his wife, Patricia Prue, are charged with luring 33-year-old Melissa Jenkins out of her home on March 25, 2012 by saying their car had broken down. Police say they attacked Jenkins, strangled her and dumped her body in the Connecticut River, weighted with cinder blocks.

Allen Prue has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder. His trial began this week.

The Burlington Free Press (http://bfpne.ws/1EGSDBY ) reports that during a police interview played at trial Friday, the 32-year-old Prue says: “Melissa, if you can hear me, I’m terribly sorry.”

His 34-year-old wife has pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder. Her trial is upcoming.
