Vermont State Police say they have found child pornography on the computer of a woman charged with killing a popular Vermont prep school teacher.


Documents filed in the case against Patricia Prue say investigators also uncovered forensic evidence showing the computer was used to conduct research on kidnapping.


The 33-year-old Prue and her husband, 30-year-old Allen Prue, have both been charged with the kidnapping and murder of St. Johnsbury Academy teacher Melissa Jenkins in March 2012.

The Prues were arrested two days later after state police searched their Waterford home. Both have pleaded not guilty.

The Caledonian-Record reports it's the second time evidence of child pornography has been found on the computer.
