Woman in VT Teacher's Death is Little-Known

Vermont townspeople say they don't know much about a woman who married an area resident and is now charged in a teacher's bizarre killing.  WAMC's Tristan O'Neill reports...

Patricia Prue and husband Allen are accused of luring Melissa Jenkins with a ruse about a broken-down car, killing her and throwing her body in a river.

Waterford Town Clerk Joanne Jurentkuff says Allen Prue's family has had hard times but they weren't "bad news."

Patricia Prue married Allen last year.

Her ex-husband Jeffrey Witkoff lives in Littleton, Colo. He says she recently requested a restraining order on him even though they hadn't talked in a couple of years.

Patricia Prue's lawyer says he hasn't met with her yet.
