In 2012, after much research and meticulous planning, the pair of Prues called Melissa Jenkins and told her their car had broken down and they needed help. Jenkins, known for being kind and helpful, loaded up her two year old son and went out into the cold to help them.
When she arrived at their location, they attacked and kidnapped
It wasnt long before they were caught. Allen confessed right away, saying it was his idea and it was just something they had always wanted to do. Patricia said the same and even refused an insanity plea so she could continue written correspondence with her husband.
Her attorneys begged her not to do so, her mental health assessment left her diagnosed with PTSD, extreme panic and anxiety and personality disorders out the wazoo. Defense says she is profoundly mentally ill. It didnt take long for her hubby to turn the tables on her either. In court he retracted his confession and said he did it because he is afraid of his wife. One look at him and you know thats a lie.
Mrs. Prue was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.
