Missing mom's statements may be banned from trial

MOSCOW, Idaho - Prosecutors in northern Idaho say statements made by a woman before she disappeared should be allowed in the first-degree murder trial of her estranged husband.

The Lewiston Tribune reports that the Latah County Prosecutor's Office earlier this week challenged motions filed by attorneys for Charles A. Capone seeking to keep the statements out.

Rachael Anderson, a 40-year-old mother of four from Clarkston, Wash., was in the process of getting divorced when she disappeared April 16, 2010.

Authorities say she was lured to a Moscow, Idaho, auto repair shop owned by Capone where she was drugged and killed. Her body hasn't been found.

Court documents say that Anderson before disappearing was in what prosecutors call a state of ongoing emergency because she didn't know who was stalking her.
