    Charles Capone / Rachel Anderson Trial

MOSCOW, Idaho -

Just after 12:00pm Monday, convicted murderer Charles Capone was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of his estranged wife Rachael Anderson. It's a fixed term sentence, meaning there will be no chance he could get out early. 

Capone spoke to the court for 45 minutes in his defense, however the judge felt Capone was not remorseful for his crimes, and cited his criminal history as proof that he would commit more crimes if released. 

In addition to his life sentence, the judge added on 20 extra years. 


PREVIOUS COVERAGE:

It's a murder conviction that has brought little closure for Rachael Anderson's family almost 5 years later. Mostly because Anderson's body has never been found. In September of 2014 her estranged husband Charles Capone was convicted of strangling Anderson to death outside of his Moscow, Idaho repair shop then dumping her body in the Snake River. Anderson has not been seen since.

Capone who was previously a convicted felon before his murder conviction is facing life in prison. 

Monday in court Capone will have 4 witnesses testify on his behalf. Several family members are expected to speak on Anderson's behalf as well. Sentencing is scheduled through the morning in a Latah County Idaho courtroom in Moscow.

We will update this story as soon as a sentence is handed down.
