Husband Indicted for Wife’s Cruise-Ship Murder: Source Says He Allegedly ‘Snapped’ at Divorce Talk

The Utah man accused of killing his wife during an apparent domestic dispute aboard an Alaska-bound cruise ship in July has been indicted for her murder, federal officials announced on Thursday.

Kenneth Manzanares is charged with first-degree murder in the death of his wife, Kristy Manzanares, 39, who was found in her cruise ship cabin dead with a severe head wound on July 25.

“Blood was spread throughout the room on multiple surfaces,” with Kenneth covered in blood, federal court documents obtained by PEOPLE state.

Kenneth was arrested by federal officials the following day. While being processed by FBI agents, he allegedly said, “My life is over.”

On Thursday, prosecutors announced that he had allegedly “willfully, deliberately, maliciously, and with premeditation and malice aforethought” killed his wife.

According to an arrest affidavit obtained by PEOPLE, Kenneth allegedly told one witness in the immediate aftermath of the killing, “She wouldn’t stop laughing at me.”

Kristy and Kenneth, high school sweethearts, had been celebrating their wedding anniversary with their daughters and extended family on a week-long Princess Cruises voyage from Seattle to Alaska.

The ship had set sail from Seattle just two days before Kristy was killed, according to investigators.

Her slaying allegedly culminated a night of marital tension between the couple that began when Kenneth became belligerent at dinner, a family source, who was not on the boat, previously told PEOPLE.

“He had been acting terrible all night,” the source said, adding that at some point that evening, Kristy asked for a divorce. At that point, Kenneth allegedly “snapped” and killed her, the source said.

The couple’s apparent marital discord was news to the source, who said, “If they were having they never showed any of that to anyone else.”

Kristy’s cause of death has not yet been released, according to federal officials.

Her cousin Kasey Hunt told PEOPLE that Kristy “had a glow to her, and filled a room with life,” adding, “She was so damn nice to everyone, she was amazing.”

Kenneth has not yet entered a plea, according to the United States Attorney’s Office. The St. George News reported that he has no criminal history in Utah, according to state court records.

His attorney, Jamie McGrady, has declined comment to PEOPLE.

GoFundMe page has been launched to help with the family’s expenses.

WATCH: Hedgehog with Progressive Neurological Disease Walks Again Thanks to Lego ‘Wheelchair’

When Chappi the hedgehog was faced with struggle, she didn’t back down — she pushed forward in a homemade wheelchair.

Chappi is one of several adorable hedgehogs on Instagram with an understandably large following.

Recently the little gal’s 4,000+ fans have been helping her work through a difficult time.

According to Laughing Squid, the Mexico-based hedgehog was diagnosed with Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome, a progressive neurological disorder that makes it hard for hedgehogs to walk.

Chappi did her best to stay active, but it eventually got to a point where she could longer walk on her own. The hedgehog’s human mom knew her beloved pet was a fighter, so she came up with a plan.

“As you know, my little girl can’t walk anymore, she is just too weak. We could see that she could move her little feet, so I decided to try making a wheelchair,” Chappi’s owner wrote in an Instagram post.

After some trial and error, Chappi’s mom found that Legos were a cheap and easy-to-use option when it came to hedgehog wheelchair construction. A tad more tinkering, and Chappi had a new set of wheels.

As the above video shows, Chappi is adjusting to the wheelchair well, and is back to moving around on her own again.

“She’s getting used to the chair, after almost 3 moths without walking. She’s a little fighter,” Chappi’s owner wrote on Instagram.

So let little Chappi, her fierce spirit and her mom be a reminder that even when your problems seems insurmountable, there is always a way to push through.

Al Gore’s Advice for President Trump: ‘Resign’

Former Vice President Al Gore has a singular piece of advice for President Donald Trump: Resign.

Joining the chorus of politicians who have denounced the president for the myriad political controversies that have transpired since Trump took office in January, Gore looked unflinchingly into the camera and told the president to “resign” in a video interview published Thursday by the British LADbible.

Gore, who went on to talk about the climate change crisis and global warming in the interview, didn’t elaborate on why he thought Trump should step down.  His comments came as the president faced widespread backlash for refusing to unequivocally lay blame for last weekend’s deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, with the neo-Nazis who marched through that college town wielding torches and weapons while shouting racist taunts.

This is not the first time Gore has spoken out against Trump. He’s also criticized the president for his decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement. 

After Trump’s move, Gore talked to PEOPLE in an exclusive interview about the consequences of ignoring the dangers posed by man-made pollution.

“What they are telling us now will happen in the future if we don’t stop using the atmosphere as an open sewer includes the threat that human civilization itself will be in danger,” said Gore, who met with President Trump and his daughter, Ivanka Trump, after the election to discuss climate change. “What the scientists told us 20 years ago has come true.”

When Gore made an appearance on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher earlier this month, he talked to Maher about that December meeting — saying that he thought “there was a chance he might come to his senses,” Politico reported.

But since becoming president, not only has Trump pulled the United States out of the Paris Agreement, but he is also moving to dismantle rules set up by the Environment Protection Agency regarding domestic regulations for vehicles and power plants.

 

In the LADbible interview, Gore also discussed his upcoming film An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power. The environmental activist encouraged people to see the new documentary — a follow-up to his 2006 Oscar-winning original documentary — that he said will “tell you everything you need to know about the climate crisis.”

He added that as citizens, Americans “have the ability to influence the political leaders that are supposed to be representing you and not representing the lobbyists and polluters.”

“I think the present government should be doing a whole lot more to solve climate crisis,” he said.

Steve Bannon, President’s Chief Strategist, Reportedly Ousted Amid Rising Criticism Over Trump’s Response to White Supremacy

Steve Bannon is out at the White House, according to multiple reports.

Reporting the breaking news on-air, CNN’s John King said: “Steve Bannon, out. White House in crisis. The question is, where do we go from here?”

The former Breitbart News chairman served as the White House Chief Strategist from the early days of the Trump administration. His job was announced just days after the 2016 presidential election, on November 13.

He was a controversial pick, because of connections to the alt-right movement, and he’s been faced with allegations of antisemitism in the past.

In the wake of recent events – including the deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia – President Donald Trump had faced mounting pressure to fire Bannon because of his ties to the movement.

The hashtag #FireBannon was trending on Twitter for much of last Sunday night and into the early days of this week.

Trump’s former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci also inflamed the controversy surrounding Bannon during an appearance Sunday on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, suggesting that Trump’s much maligned response to Charlottesville was influenced by him.

“If the president really wants to execute that legislative agenda that I think is so promising for the American people, the lower-middle class people and the middle class people, then he has to move away from that sort of Bannon-bart nonsense,” said Scaramucci.

Earlier this year, Hannah told PEOPLE Now that her husband had already settled on a name for their bundle of joy, but that she wasn’t exactly feeling it.

“I don’t wanna tell you, ’cause I don’t think that’ll be the name, personally,” the 27-year-old model said of keeping mum on Jeter’s pick. “We have some brainstorming to do. We have some time.”

“I don’t like anything now, that I’m hearing,” she admitted. “But that’s probably ’cause I’m just an emotional hot mess lately. So everything, I’m like, ‘Never, I could never name her that!’ So we’ll see.”

Salma Hayek Dishes On Her First Kiss at 15 Years Old: ‘I Was a Natural!’

You never forget your first kiss — just ask Salma Hayek!

The 50-year-old actress stopped SiriusXM’s Hits 1 in Hollywood on Friday, where she gushed about her first kiss with a boy named Pablo.

“I was 15 and everybody was kissing and not me and then, of course, now you’re really nervous because everybody’s an expert and you’ve never done it!” she said.

Hayek said Pablo, her boyfriend at the time, had given her an ultimatum: kiss him or end the relationship. So she went to several friends for advice.

“Everybody gave me a different technique. You stick your tongue in, one circle to the right, one circle to the left,” she recalled. “I went to the next one, they confused me all the more.”

The Beatriz at Dinner actress said she decided to “wing it,” and resolved to put honey on her lips each night before bed so that her kiss would “taste good.”

“He kissed me and I said, ‘What does it taste like?’ ” Hayek recalled. “He said it tasted like honey.”

She added that she soon gave up on her honey trick, after bugs became attracted to the sweet substance. But Hayek likely didn’t need the honey after that fateful first kiss.

“I was a natural, by the way,” the actress declared.

Hayek is now married to French businessman François-Henri Pinault. The two are parents to 9-year-old Valentina Paloma Pinault.

American Tourist’s First-Hand Account of Deadly Attack in Barcelona: ‘I Can’t Unsee’ the Screams and Terror

During Thursday’s deadly van attack in Barcelona, Spain, American tourist Jordan Fisher says she safely took refuge inside a tiny ice cream shop — but she’ll never be able to forget “the screams, the terrified faces” from just outside the door.

“I can’t unsee it, it just keeps replaying over and over in my head,” Fisher, of San Francisco, tells PEOPLE.

She adds, “My heart is in pieces.”

Fisher and her girlfriend Maria Corona, 34 — who are traveling around Europe for three weeks on vacation — were sitting down to eat at a seafood restaurant on the edge of the Las Ramblas boulevard when a van barreled into the crowds gathered at the popular destination, killing 13 and injuring scores more.

“I was looking at the menu to order and I looked up and saw two cops run down an alley,” Fisher recalls. “I thought nothing of it until I looked up again and there were hundreds of people flooding the tiny area we were in.”

She continues, “They were all running towards us.”

Panicked, Fisher says she and Corona joined the hoards of people fleeing, but “everyone was trampling over everybody.” She explains, “Food, drinks, bags, people were flying everywhere. Everyone screaming in different languages. We had no idea what was going on.”

Eventually, Fisher — a nanny, artist and hairstylist — and Corona came across a shop with the door barricaded and “screamed for them to please let us in.”

Inside the ice cream store, called Sweet Gaufre, were around 40 people, Fisher says.

“Everyone was horrified, crying, screaming,” she says, adding, “People lost their children and significant others in the crowds.”

The group remained in the locked store for more than seven hours under advisory from authorities, Fisher says, noting that she and Corona were the only native English speakers among the group.

The view from the building was horrifying, she says: “We could count eight bodies.”

“In the evening they evacuated every building separately,” Fisher says. “They checked everyone’s bags and searched us before they let us leave.”

After checking in with a police officer to provide information, Fisher says she and Corona walked the 15 minutes back to their hotel just after midnight.

“The whole city was silent and empty. There were no taxis or anything,” she says, “… Every few steps we walked we would see another body.”

Though Fisher and Corona escaped the ordeal, the former tells PEOPLE, “ are both physically okay. Emotionally, no.”

A second van attack hours after the Barcelona rampage, in the coastal town of Cambrils, Spain, killed a 14th person. Authorities have reportedly said they believe both incidents were the work of the same terror group.

On Friday, the king of Spain — Felipe VI — led a moment of silence in the city’s famous Catalonia Square surrounded by scores of mourners. The crowd clapped and chanted “I am not afraid,” according to NBC News.
