MOSCOW, Idaho-- The Latah County Prosecutor charged Charles Capone and David Stone with murder on Wednesday. Anderson vanished in 2010 and her body was never found. Capone was Anderson’s estranged husband.
Capone owned and ran an auto shop at the time his wife disappeared. Authorities said Multiple Service; along South Main Street was the last place Anderson was seen.
Several people who knew Capone told KREM 2 News in Thursday that they are not surprised by the arrest.
“He was a little bit of an odd character. I wouldn't throw him right in with the normal group of people,” said Jake Stewart.
Stewart manufactures jewelry and custom pieces out of his shop in this Moscow Business Park near Capone’s former business. He said he met Capone a couple times in passing. Steward said he was not surprised that Capone was charged Wednesday for Anderson’s murder.
“I think that the presumption has always been,” said Stewart, “I don't think there was anyone that really questioned if he was involved, with his wife's disappearance.”
Anderson’s daughter said she also thought Capone killed her mother.
Authorities also arrested a second murder suspect on Wednesday. David Stone also faces charged of helping plot the murder of Anderson.
