Convicted Killer Denied Retrial

allen prueST. JOHNSBURY- The convicted killer in the Melissa Jenkins murder case, Allen Prue, has been denied a new trial.



A judge found that Allen Prue had a fair trial and does not deserve a new one.

Prue was found guilty in October of kidnapping, first degree murder, and conspiracy charges in the death of Melissa Jenkins.

On November 6th, Allen Prue sent an appeal to the Vermont Supreme Court, saying it wasn't fair that Judge Bobert Bent did not allow a testimony from a pyschologist.

During the trial, Prue's lawyer tried calling Dr. Phillip Kinsler to testify about his examination of Patrica Prue, however, Judge Bent did not allow it.

Patrica Prue is also charged with killing the St. Johnsbury Academy teacher and her trial is set for next February.

Allen Prue will be sentenced sometime next year.
