ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - The state’s attorney for Caledonia County is opposing a request to reconsider the life sentence of a Vermont man convicted in the 2012 kidnapping and murder of a Waterford teacher.

The Caledonian Record reports (http://bit.ly/2dSbl3r ) a jury in October 2014 found 32-year-old Allen Prue guilty of first-degree murder, attempted kidnapping and conspiracy to commit murder for his role in the death of 33-year-old Melissa Jenkins.

Prue’s wife and co-defendant, Patricia, was also sentenced to life in prison for taking part in the St. Johnsbury Academy teacher’s murder.

The Waterford man wrote to the court earlier this month to request the reconsideration of his sentence.

State’s attorney Lisa Warren argued in her response Monday that Prue’s trial judge took his wife’s role in the crime into consideration when sentencing him.
