US won't release photo of Vt. man who killed niece

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- The U.S. Marshals Service won't release a photo of a Vermont man who pleaded guilty to killing his niece because to do so would violate his privacy.

The Burlington Free Press (http://bfpne.ws/19SAEIz ) says it filed a Freedom of Information Act request seeking a current photo of Michael Jacques, the 47-year-old Randolph man who pleaded guilty this week to killing Brooke Bennett in 2008.

Jacques had faced a federal death penalty trial, but prosecutors agreed to a sentence of life-without-parole in exchange for the plea.

Marshals Service lawyer William Bordley told the paper it could release a booking photo if Jacques waived his privacy rights or if the newspaper could prove the public's interest was served by releasing the photo.

The Free Press plans to appeal.
