Prosecutors say a former professional football player sliced his wife's neck and then crawled on the ground outside their rented Utah condominium before flagging down a police officer.
Murder charges filed Monday against 46-year-old Anthony D. McClanahan say the bloody Nov. 2 scene in Park City indicated his 28-year-old wife Keri "KC" McClanahan put up a desperate struggle.
Charging documents say she was killed with a small, sharp knife held on a nylon-cord bracelet.
McClanahan was previously charged with child kidnapping after authorities said he took his son from school in Arizona and drove him through Nevada and Utah last month.
No attorney was immediately listed for McClanahan.
McClanahan played with the Stampeders from 1995 to 1998.Articled from the CBC RSS Syndication CBC.ca - RSS Feeds Copyright is that of their respective owners (CBC) Calgary News Releases
