LOS ANGELES: An American has been charged with murdering his wife during a cruise in Alaska because she wouldn’t stop laughing at him, US authorities said on Thursday.
According to court documents filed on Wednesday, personnel of the Emerald Princess went into a cabin occupied by Kenneth Manzanares, 39, and his wife Kristy, and found her dead, covered in blood from a head wound.
Before the arrival of security agents, witnesses had gone into the couple’s room and seen blood on Manzanares’s hands and clothes.
When one of the witnesses asked him what had happened, Manzanares responded: “She would not stop laughing at me,” according to the affidavit.
During a search by FBI agents, the suspect, who was arrested on Wednesday, reportedly said: “My life is over.”
According to CBS, a “murder mystery” dinner was in progress when the cruise staff made announcements related to the murder – which initially made passengers think the death was part of the event.
Speaking to Fox13, passengers said they did not know the woman was dead in a room but they saw a man trying to jump off the ship.
“People were running through the hall with blood all over them and trying to get security,” said a passenger Megan Morr.
