MOSCOW, ID - The first day of Charles Capone's murder trial is now complete, with opening arguments from both Capone's attorneys and the prosecution, and testimony from several witnesses.

Charles Capone is on trial in Latah County District Court in Moscow on charges of first degree murder and failure to notify a coroner or law enforcement officer about a death.

He's accused of killing his estranged wife Rachael Anderson who went missing in April 2010.

Tuesday prosecutors focused on showing the jury that Anderson did indeed go missing and that prior to her disappearance, she feared Capone. And that fear...fear changed her.

"I've described it to people as watching like when your parents go through cancer," said Anderson's daughter, Amber Griswold. "They are just suffering. She was just suffering. And she was just so sad and so upset and so confused."

The state called all four of Anderson's children to the stand, including ten-year-old Gavin, her ex-husbands' and her sister.

One witness scheduled to appear is David Stone, who's accused of playing a role in Anderson's murder and disappearance. He pleaded guilty to lesser charges in exchange for his testimony against Capone.

Testimony will resume again Wednesday morning at 9:00 a.m.
