    ST. JOHNSBURY A lawyer for a woman accused along with her husband in the killing of a popular St. Johnsbury teacher has withdrawn from the case because of a conflict of interest.

    On Friday, the judge granted defense attorney Marc Eagles request.

    Patricia Prue and her husband, Allen Prue, are accused of abducting and killing Melissa Jenkins after luring her from her home in March 2012. Both have pleaded not guilty.

    Eagle had sought to be removed from the case because one of his former clients has become a potential witness for the state.

    Eagle said Judge Mary Miles Teachout granted his motion to withdraw.

    Patricia Prue previously had asked for a new lawyer, but Teachout denied her request.
