MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - Prosecutors have rested their case in the first-degree murder trial of a northern Idaho man accused of strangling his estranged wife and dumping her body into the Snake River.

The Lewiston Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1tH2twk) that prosecutors rested their case Thursday in 2nd District Court and defense attorneys for Charles Capone are scheduled to start presenting their case Friday.

The 53-year-old Capone is accused of killing 40-year-old Rachael Anderson from Clarkston, Washington, in April 2010. The body of the mother of four hasn’t been found.

A co-defendant earlier this week testified that he witnessed Capone kill Anderson and then helped dispose of the body.

Fifty-one-year-old David Stone made a deal with prosecutors to have a murder charge against him dropped in exchange for testifying against Capone.
