ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) — A Vermont woman charged with her husband in the kidnapping and killing of a St. Johnsbury teacher is scheduled to go on trial in March.

Patricia Prue of Waterford is charged with aggravated murder, kidnapping, and conspiracy to commit murder in the 2012 death of Melissa Jenkins.

The Caledonian Record reports that the 35-year-old Prue, who has pleaded not guilty, plans to use the insanity defense.

Her husband, Allen Prue, was convicted last month and is awaiting sentencing. He has appealed to the state supreme court for a new trial.
