LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) - A northern Idaho man convicted of killing his estranged wife won’t be sentenced until late February so he can undergo a mental health exam.

The Lewiston Tribune (https://bit.ly/1BQ5wtp ) reports that Charles Capone’s attorney asked that the sentencing hearing be delayed until Feb. 23 so that an expert can examine the 53-year-old Moscow, Idaho man and review his health records.

Capone was originally set to be sentenced on Jan. 5 for first-degree murder and related crimes. Prosecutors said he strangled his estranged wife, Rachael Anderson, and then dumped her body in the Snake River.

Capone’s attorney, Ray Barker, says a presentence investigation report raised mental health issues that need to be evaluated.
