Wash. Man charged with murder in missing wife case
Prosecutors in Idaho are charging a Washington man with first-degree murder and other crimes related to the disappearance of his estranged wife three years ago.
Fifty-one-year-old Charles Capone of Clarkston, Wash., was also charged Wednesday with conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, failure to notify officials of a death and one other felony.
The charges were filed by Latah County Prosecutor William Thompson Jr. in connection with the disappearance of 40-year-old Rachael Anderson in April 2010. Capone and Anderson — a mother of four children — were in the process of getting a divorce when she disappeared.
Capone is being held in a county jail in Washington and his extradition to Idaho is pending. He was facing an assault charge for an encounter with Anderson before her disappearance.
