LATAH COUNTY, Idaho -

 

On Monday, prosecutors in Latah County filed a plea agreement in the murder charges against David Stone. Stone, alongside his alleged accomplice Charles Capone, are accused of murdering Rachael Anderson in 2010 and hiding her body. She has never been seen since.

Capone & Stone were arrested and charged with murder and several other charges. Both men were expected to stand trial early next year.
 
In a series of recent interviews with investigators, prosecutor Bill Thompson says Stone told investigators he did not kill Rachael Anderson, but rather he came across the murder committed by Capone after the fact. Capone has maintained his innocence all along.

Prosecutor Bill Thompson says Stone gave up "information that we hope will help investigators locate Rachael."

In the plea agreement, Stone will testify against Capone. Stone also pled guilty to one count of felony "Failure to Notify Law Enforcement of a Death." In return, prosecutors dropped the Murder and Conspiracy to Commit Murder charges against Stone.

Stone is facing 7 years in prison.

KHQ's Dylan Wohlenhaus spoke to one of the daughters of Anderson, Ashley Colbert, who was in court Wednesday. She said, "this is a big relief that we get to know the answers in the end, instead of guessing."
 
Charles Capone is the estranged husband of Anderson.

Capone will stand trial for her murder in March of 2014.

Stone will also be sentenced in March.
