BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Vermont’s chief medical examiner says the body of a St. Johnsbury teacher allegedly killed by a man and his wife after being lured from her home “looked beat up.”

Dr. Steven Shapiro made the comments Tuesday during the first degree murder trial of Allen Prue, the 32-year-old Waterford man on trial for the 2012 killing of Melissa Jenkins.

Autopsy photos of Jenkins’ bruised and marked body were shown Tuesday in Vermont Superior Court in Burlington.

The Burlington Free Press (https://bfpne.ws/1sOi2Fd ) reports Shapiro highlighted different scrapes and bruises on Jenkins’ body that he felt were caused by a stun gun.

Prue and his wife Patricia Prue are charged with killing Jenkins and dumping her body in the Connecticut River. Patricia Prue will be tried separately.
