COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - Charles Capone, the estranged husband of missing Clarkston, WA woman Rachael Anderson, has changed his plea to guilty for Unlawful Possession of a Firearm. Sentencing is set for September 27th.
Capone initially faced two federal firearms charges and pleaded innocent, but that changed Tuesday in U.S. District Court when Capone pleaded guilty to one of the charges as part of an agreement with prosecutors.
Authorities say Capone told a friend he carried a gun while following his wife in February to determine whether she was seeing someone else. He was arrested on the gun charges in May. Capone is the last known person to see his wife, 41-year-old Rachael Anderson, in April before she disappeared. He has not been charged in his wife's disappearance, nor named a suspect.
