MOSCOW, Idaho - Charles Capone and David Stone now face first degree murder charges in the disappearance of Capone's estranged wife, Rachael Anderson. But that is not the only charge the Latah County Prosecutor filed Wednesday morning.

Capone also faces conspiracy to commit murder, failure to notify a coroner or law enforcement officer of a death, and conspiracy to commit failure to notify a coroner or law enforcement officer of a death.  

Capone was previously charged with second degree assault. Investigators believed all of these crimes were committed in Latah County and is the reason why he is facing these charges there and not in Asotin County. Asotin County dismissed all local charges against Charles Capone. He was previously facing an assault charge stemming from an incident with Rachael Anderson three years ago.  

In outlining the reason for the first degree murder charge, investigators made the following comments in court documents:  

1. Charles Capone and David Stone surveiled, stalked and followed Rachael Anderson.  

2. Charles Capone exchanged text messaged and telephone communications with Rachael Anderson for the purpose of luring her to Capone's business in Latah County, Idaho.  

3. Charles Capone gave an ultimatum to Rachael Anderson for her to return to him and not pursue divorce.  

4. David Stone sought and received instructions on the operation of a backhoe.  

5. Charles Capone stole a prescription drug known as Ambien.  

6. David Stone went to Charles Capone's business on April 16, 2010.  

7. Charles Capone and/or David Stone put Ambien into Rachael Anderson's beer for the purpose of drugging her.  

8. Charles Capone and/or David Stone killed and murdered Rachael Anderson.  

"All of our investigative information has led us to believe these crimes happened near Moscow," Asotin County Sheriff Ken Bancroft said.  

Investigators said they still have no "solid leads" on where Rachael Anderson's body may be.   "We've excavated a lot of dirt in the past three years," Bancroft said. "But no signs of her body." Capone is set to be extradited to Latah County to face these charges.

PREVIOUS STORY:

MOSCOW, Idaho - On Wednesday Charles Capone was charged with 1st degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder, failure to notify a coroner or law enforcement officer of a death and conspiracy to commit failure to notify a coroner or law enforcement officer of a death.

Capone is facing these charges in Latah County 3 years after his estranged wife Rachael Anderson disappeared.

Capone has remained the sole suspect in this case. Capone was being held in the Asotin county jail facing an assault charge stemming from an incident with Anderson three years ago. He was transported to Asotin county last year after serving time in Western Washington for un related charges.      

Asotin county sheriff Ken Bancroft tells KHQ's Dylan Wohlenhaus that assault charges have been dropped against Capone so he could face the more serious charges in Latah County.

Bancroft says Capone was served papers to face murder charges early Wednesday morning in jail. Charles Capone has denied he has ever had any involvement with Anderson's disappearance.

Investigators believe the crimes Capone committed against Anderson happened in Latah County and is why he is facing charges there. Investigators say they have no "Solid Leads" on where Anderson's body may be. Bancroft says "We've excavated a lot of dirt in the past 3 years."
