Idaho Man Sentenced to 7 Years For Helping Cover Up Killing

by

An Idaho man has been sentenced to seven years in prison for helping cover up the killing of a Washington woman and staying silent for years.

David Stone, 51, of Moscow, will serve three years before he's eligible for parole, and has been credited for 18 months he has already spent in jail.

Stone pleaded guilty to failure to notify authorities. In exchange, he testified against 53-year-old Charles Capone. He testified that he saw Capone strangle Clarkston, Wash., resident Rachael Anderson in April 2010, then helped to dump her body in the Snake River. Anderson's body has not been recovered.

Capone has been convicted of first degree murder and faces life in prison. He is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 5.
