A Moscow man has pleaded not guilty to murder and conspiracy charges stemming from the April 2010 disappearance of another man's estranged wife.
Fifty-year-old David C. Stone of Moscow made the plea Thursday in 2nd District Court.
Fifty-two-year-old Charles A. Capone, also of Moscow, pleaded not guilty to the same charges in August.
Capone and co-defendant Stone are charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder in the death of Rachael Anderson of Clarkston, Wash. She was last seen at Capone's shop in Moscow. Her body has not been found.
Judge Jeff Brudie says he will decide as soon as possible on a motion by Latah County Prosecuting Attorney William Thompson Jr. to combine the two trials.
