state name: missouri

an employee in a supervisor position disclosed in confidence to a worker under his supervision that he violated company policy and that his wife (another employee) covered him. this employee broke confidence based upon moral, ethical, and policy violations and informed another supervisor of this violation - of course, this employee does not want to deal with the reprocutions of breaking confidence and all evidence found would need for the disclosure that this was reported in order to justify termination of the employee and his spouse. how can this employee be protected from reprocutions? how can we terminate with just cause without revealing that this employee broke confidence and thereby protect this employee?
(remember that evidence would not have been obtained, nor would the situation have been discovered if the employee had not reported the violation and this is the only employee who has been given that information)
