Co-defendant in murder case offers information

MOSCOW, Idaho — Officials in Latah County say a man who reached a plea agreement in the April 2010 disappearance of a Clarkston, Wash., woman recently offered information that prosecutors hope will help locate her body.

David Stone, of Moscow, pleaded guilty Wednesday to failure to notify law enforcement of the death of Rachael Anderson. Prosecutor William Thompson Jr. says Stone has agreed to testify about what happened after he arrived at the alleged crime scene.

Anderson’s estranged husband, Charles Capone, faces trial for first-degree murder March 31.

Thompson said detectives interviewed Stone twice last month and believe he was not responsible for Anderson’s death, but helped cover it up.

Thompson says last month’s search of the Snake River west of Clarkston was related, in part, to what Stone told investigators.
