ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - The trial for a Vermont man charged along with his wife in the killing of a popular St. Johnsbury teacher has been moved to Chittenden County.

The state’s attorney told WCAX-TV that the judge said Friday that Allen Prue will be tried in Chittenden County, probably in September.

The judge also said that Patricia Prue will likely be tried in Chittenden County in November.

The Prues face kidnapping and first-degree murder charges in the March 2012 death of Melissa Jenkins. Police allege the Prues lured Jenkins from her home and then killed her.

They have both pleaded not guilty.

Patricia Prue intends to use an insanity defense at her upcoming trial.
