Prosecutor files to deny Change of Venue for Capone trial

ASOTIN, WA - Prosecutor Ben Nichols has announced that the trial for Charles Capone must stay in Asotin County.

Nichols said that he filed the response after Capone's defense attorney filed a motion for a change of venue. The trial stems from a domestic violence charge including second degree assault. Prosecutors allege Capone of attempting to strangle 40-year-old Rachael Anderson. The two were married before her disappearance in 2009, and he is considered a person of interest in the case.

Capone remains at the Asotin County Jail on a $1 million bond for the attempted strangulation charge.
