Judge splits murder trials for 2 N. Idaho menSeptember 22, 2013 @ 6:00 am
MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - A state judge has agreed to hold separate trials for two Moscow men charged with murder and conspiracy in the 2010 disappearance of an eastern Washington woman.
A judge last week decided to hold separate trials for 52-year-old Charles Capone and 50-year-old David Stone.
They are both charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder in the death of Rachael Anderson of Clarkston, Wash. She was last seen at Capone's shop in Moscow. Her body has not been found.
Second District Judge Jeff M. Brudie determined the risk of creating an unfair prejudice to one or both defendants by holding one trial outweighed the economic benefits of holding one trial for both defendants.
The Lewiston Tribune reports ( http://bit.ly/12xqrN8) that Capone's trial is set for Dec. 9.
