The bond for a Moscow man charged with assaulting a now-missing Clarkston woman nearly 3 years ago remains at $1 million following a review Wednesday in Asotin County Superior Court.
51-year-old Charles Capone is being held at the Asotin County Jail on a second-degree assault charge for allegedly attempting to strangle his estranged wife, Rachael Anderson, on Dec. 27, 2009. Anderson disappeared in April 2010.
Capone has pleaded not guilty to the assault charges.
Judge William Acey said a $1 million bond is normally reserved for homicide charges, but Capone has a serious history of violence and poses a flight risk if released. His next court appearance is Nov. 5.
Anderson and Capone were in the process of getting divorced when she vanished. While Capone is a person of interest in Anderson’s disappearance, no charges have been filed in that case.
