BREAKING: NFL Player Charged With MURDER After Slashing Wife’s Throat, Here’s What We Know


Amid an ongoing image problem for the National Football League, troubling news has broken about a former player that’s really not going to reflect well on the league.

Former player for the Dallas Cowboys Anthony McClanahan has been charged with the brutal murder of his wife. McClanahan, who played with the Cowboys in the 90s and went on to play in the Canadian Football League, was arrested on Monday in relation to the death of his wife, Keri, after her body was found at the couple’s condominium in Utah, Fox News reported.


The 28-year-old woman was found outside their residence with multiple cuts all over her body, as well as other defensive wounds. According to Fox, McClanahan was found by police crawling around on his stomach with blood all over his clothes early on November 2, when he lifted himself up enough to flag down a police officer.


More on the arrest from Fox:

McClanahan, who played four years with the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League in the mid-1990s after a collegiate career at Washington State University, initially told officers he and his wife and baby had been attacked, but investigators found no evidence of an infant at the condo, or anyone entering the unit in the Park Regency in Park City.

His wife’s body was found in the condominium he had rented after someone else at the building called 911, saying he was crawling low to the ground through the hallways and calling for help. Keri McClanahan had cuts to the front, back and sides of her neck, as well as other defensive wounds and carpet burns.

The bloody scene in the ski town indicated that Keri “KC” McClanahan, 28, put up a desperate struggle before she was killed. The murder weapon was a small, sharp knife she’d worn sheathed in a nylon paracord bracelet, charging documents stated.

McClanahan is originally from Bakersfield, California and has lived all over the country in the pursuit of his career. As Fox noted, while he trained with the Dallas Cowboys years back, he never actually played a game in the NFL.

Regardless, his arrest highlights the issue the NFL, and professional sports in general, have with violent and otherwise uncontrollable players breaking the law.
