Melissa Jenkins, Vermont teacher Melissa Jenkins was strangled and police today arrested a married couple and charged them with her death, police said.

Police, however, did not give a motive for the killing during a brief news conference this morning.

Allen Prue, 30, and Patricia Prue, 33, who are husband and wife, are scheduled to be arraigned later this morning on charges of second degree murder and improper disposal of a body.

The Prues were taken into custody early today.

“They knew Ms. Jenkins and had snow plowed her driveway a few years ago,” State Police Maj. Ed Ledo said.

A search warrant is being executed at the Prues’ home.  Allen Prue also worked newspaper delivery man for the Caledonian Record. The newspaper reported that Prue arrived an hour late for his shift on Sunday night, around the same time Jenkins vanished.
