Trial in Missing North Idaho Mother Case Continues
MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) — The trial in the case of a Moscow man charged with killing his estranged wife in April 2010 has entered its second week.
Charles Capone is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 40-year-old Rachael Anderson. Jurors are expected to hear testimony this week from co-defendant David Stone, who reportedly told authorities that Capone strangled Anderson, wrapped her body in a tarp and threw it into the Snake River near Clarkston, Washington.
Two men who spent time in jail with Capone testified last week that while he didn't directly say he'd killed his wife, he had said things like "she wasn't coming back," that he'd buried her body "so deep they'll never find her" and that prosecutors "don't have a case without a body." Family members also testified that Anderson was being harassed and was frightened.
