N. Idaho man pleads guilty in trailer park killing

A northern Idaho man has pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of an acquaintance at a trailer park.

The Lewiston Tribune reports that 28-year-old Nathaniel H. Nisbet made the plea Thursday in 2nd District Court. In exchange, prosecutors dropped a second-degree murder charge.

Police say Nisbet shot and killed 42-year-old Charles "Pat" McMichael during a confrontation at the Bel Air Mobile Home Park in Moscow on Nov. 10.

Authorities say McMichael arrived at the home with his wife and Nisbet's estranged wife to change the locks on her mobile home, but McMichael found Nisbet inside with a 9 mm pistol.

Judge John R. Stegner has yet to rule on whether he will accept the plea agreement.

If he does, Nisbet faces up to 15 years in prison.

Judge suppresses statements made to police

Judge suppresses statements made to police

A northern Idaho judge has ruled that potentially incriminating statements made to police by a man charged with killing his estranged wife can't be used at trial.

Second District Judge Michael J. Griffin on Wednesday granted the defense motion made by attorneys for 52-year-old Charles A. Capone.

But he also denied a defense motion to have the trial moved out of Latah County.

Rachael Anderson, a 40-year-old mother of four from Clarkston, Wash., was in the process of getting a divorce when she disappeared on April 16, 2010.

Authorities say she was lured to a Moscow, Idaho, auto repair shop owned by Capone where she was drugged and killed. Her body hasn't been found.

Capone's first-degree murder trial is scheduled to start June 23.
