In brief: Two men arrested in woman’s death

Latah County sheriff’s deputies arrested two men in the 2010 disappearance and death of a Clarkston woman.

Investigators believe Charles A. Capone, 51, and David C. Stone, 49, are connected to the disappearance of Capone’s wife, Rachael Anderson, 40, a mother of four. Anderson filed for divorce in January 2010 after she said Capone choked and shoved her. She was reported missing April 16, 2010, after she failed to show up for work at her job in Lewiston, previous news reports said.

Capone and Stone, both of Moscow, Idaho, are charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder. They’re also charged with not notifying authorities of a death.

Imitation bomb leads to arrest

A Spokane County man was ordered held on a $50,000 bond Wednesday for allegedly placing a realistic-looking imitation bomb in a Newman Lake mailbox Tuesday afternoon.

Jacob Mahoney, 26, was arrested on felony charges of malicious placement of an imitation device and harassment, a news release from the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputies were summoned to 17919 N. Thompson Creek Road when a nearby homeowner found a device that looked like dynamite sticks and a detonator tucked into a mailbox. Experts later determined it was a fake but concluded it was intended to intimidate or scare the victim.
