MOSCOW, Idaho -- The trial for a man accused of drugging and killing his estranged wife inside a Moscow auto repair shop in 2010 was postponed Monday.

Judge Michael Griffin disqualified himself from trying the case for undisclosed reasons.

The district court clerk told KREM 2 News that an order seeking a new judge has been filed. There is no word on when the trial will begin.

Charles Capone pleaded not guilty to first-degree charges for the murder of his estranged wife Rachel Anderson.

Anderson was in the process of filing for divorce when she disappeared. A search for her remains in the Snake River earlier this month turned up empty.
