Couple Charged In Vermont Teacher Killing Get New Lawyers
A couple charged in the killing of a St. Johnsbury teacher have been assigned new lawyers.
Robert Sussman had been assigned to represent Patricia Prue after her former attorney told the judge he had a conflict of interest in the case.
But Sussman also discovered he had a conflict with one of the people on the witness list. Now White River Junction attorney Brian Marsicovetere has been assigned to represent Patricia Prue.
The Caledonian Record reports that Allen Prue also has a new attorney after his lawyer withdrew because of a conflict. Mark Katims has been assigned to represent him.
The Prues of Waterford are charged with abducting and killing Melissa Jenkins in March of 2012. They have pleaded not guilty and are being held without bail.
