The heinous crime of a husband on a family cruise for his wedding anniversary

A few days ago, a man from Utah was sentenced to 30 years in prison for brutally murdering his wife on a 2017 cruise to Alaska.

By boarding the Emerald Princess, Kristy Manzanares was in heaven. But this mother of a family has never set foot on solid ground. In 2017, this woman from Utah took a cruise to Alaska to celebrate her wedding anniversary with her husband Kenneth, their three daughters and a few other members of their family. In love since high school, they should take advantage of several days at sea to reach Seattle to Anchorage. But the trip turned into a nightmare when she told the American that she wanted a divorce.. A quarrel broke out and the husband beat his wife to death, in front of their loved ones, as he claimed in custody. “Their two daughters heard Kristy scream and tried to enter the cabin using the adjoining door when Kenneth told them to stay outside”, said the US attorney’s office.

“They both went to the balcony and saw Kenneth throw Kristy on the bed hitting her on the head with closed fists”, can we still read. Kristy’s brothers arrived on the scene and managed to prevent their sister from being thrown from the balcony by Kenneth. But it was already too late, she could never be revived. More than three years after the tragedy, the murderer was sentenced to 30 years of criminal imprisonment followed by five years of supervised release. He has no chance of getting parole until he has served his sentence. “It was not a random act of violence but a frightening neglect of human life for which he will serve 30 years in a federal prison, where there is never a parole, Alaskan Attorney Bryan Wilson said. While the punishment will not bring Kristy back to her family and friends, we hope she brings a sense of justice for this heinous crime. “

“She was so nice to everyone, she was amazing”

“No excuse can justify the savagery committed by this man, who will now spend the next three decades behind barsan FBI agent said in a statement. The FBI has worked tirelessly, with the support of our partners, to seek justice for Kristy – a beloved mother, daughter, sister and friend. “ Robert Britt added that although the courts have made a firm decision, “The lasting impact and trauma this man inflicted on Kristy’s family can never be erased”. For this crime, Kenneth was arrested in July 2017 and has already spent several years behind bars. Kristy’s cousin Kasey Hunt told People in 2017 that she was “a shine and that she filled a room with her joie de vivre” : “She was so nice to everyone, she was amazing.”
