MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) — A northern Idaho man charged with killing his estranged wife and dumping her body in the Snake River has been found guilty of first-degree murder.

The jury on Wednesday also found 53-year-old Charles Capone guilty of failure to notify a coroner or law enforcement officer about a death.

The 2nd District Court jury deliberated a day and a half before determining Capone of Moscow killed 40-year-old Rachael Anderson from Clarkston, Washington, in April 2010. The body of the mother of four hasn't been found.

A co-defendant last week testified that he witnessed Capone kill Anderson and then helped dispose of the body in the Snake River.
