UPDATE: Missing Mom's Statements May Be Banned From Trial

Posted: Updated:
MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - 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 (http://bit.ly/1dRAHKE) 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.
