Prosecutor will not seek capital punishment in Capone and Stone case

COLFAX, WA - The Latah County prosecutor will not seek the death penalty in the state's case against Charles Capone and David Stone who are both charged with the murder of a Clarkston woman.

The two Moscow men were arrested in May in connection with the 2010 disappearance of Rachael Anderson. Both are charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

Prosecutor Bill Thompson recently filed a notice with the court indicating his intent to avoid seeking capital punishment in this case. Capone and Stone's preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 30th.
