Man suspected in wife’s case sentenced on gun charge
LEWISTON — A man named a person of interest in his estranged wife’s disappearance has been sentenced to 33 months in prison for possession of a firearm in a separate case.
Charles A. Capone, of Moscow, initially faced two federal firearms charges and pleaded innocent. He later reached an agreement with prosecutors and in July, pleaded guilty to one of the charges.
Prosecutors say Capone told a friend he carried a pistol while following his wife in February to determine whether she was seeing someone else. He was arrested on the gun charges in May.
Capone is the last known person to see his wife, 41-year-old Rachael Anderson of Clarkston, Wash., in April before she disappeared. He has not been charged in his wife’s disappearance, nor named a suspect.
