    A Vermont man who was convicted of killing a teacher in 2012 has filed a second post-conviction relief request.

    Prue says in his request that he had ineffective legal counsel during his trial for the kidnapping and killing of Melissa Jenkins.

    Prosecutors said Prue and his now ex-wife lured Jenkins out of her St. Johnsbury home with a false claim of car trouble.
