LATAH COUNTY, Idaho -- Two men charged with murder and conspiracy in the disappearance of a Clarkston woman will get separate trials.

Rachel Anderson disappeared more than three years ago. Police said that her estranged husband Charles Capone murdered her with his friend David Stone. Capone pleaded guilty to the charges in August.

The Latah County prosecutors office filed a motion to combine the two trials because they would include the same evidence and witnesses. But a judge decided to hold separate trials for the defendants, saying that it would be fairer for the two men.

Capone's trial is set to begin December 9th.
