Former Stampeders linebacker accused of killing wife

November 06, 2017 - 6:29 AM

SALT LAKE CITY - Utah authorities say a former Calgary Stampeders linebacker is suspected of killing his wife.

Prosecutors said in a news release Friday that Anthony D. McClanahan has been arrested but not yet charged in the death of Keri "KC" McClanahan. She was found Thursday in a Park City hotel with knife wounds to her throat.

Anthony McClanahan was charged Friday with child kidnapping. Authorities say the 46-year-old took his 8-year-old son from an Arizona school on Oct. 3 without the mother's permission, then travelled through Nevada and Utah.

He was apprehended in Utah on Oct. 12 and gave his son back. He bonded out of jail a week later.

McClanahan is being held without bail, and it's unknown if he has a lawyer.

McClanahan played for the Stampeders from 1995-1998

Prior to turning professional, he was a linebacker at Washington State from 1991-1993.
