"Utah man says he killed wife because she laughed at him"

AP: Kenneth Manzanares was charged with murder after he was found with blood on his hands and clothes and blood spread throughout the cabin on the Princess Cruises ship Tuesday night, according to a criminal complaint by FBI Special Agent Michael L. Watson.

Kristy Manzanares, 39, had a severe head wound, but authorities have declined to release other details in the case, including how many people were traveling with the couple on the 3,400-passenger Emerald Princess that left Sunday from Seattle.

A man and others went into the room before medical workers and security officers had arrived and saw the woman on the floor covered in blood, according to court documents. The man asked Manzanares what happened, and the suspect said, "She would not stop laughing at me."

Manzanares then grabbed his wife's body and tried to drag her to the balcony, but the man stopped him, Watson wrote. A ship security officer handcuffed Manzanares in a nearby cabin.

While the FBI searched him, he spontaneously said, "My life is over."

Marriage brings out the worst in people.

Is it too soon to suggest that perhaps this was not a marriage made in heaven?

I don't know about him, but most certainly her life is over. If he wanted his life to be over; he should have jumped overboard.

Well his life is not over, at least not yet, it is just going to be profoundly different.

"My life is over."

No shit.

Some commenter once laid down the rule: "Women are afraid men will hurt them and men are afraid women will laugh at them."

Hard to see how this story disproves that theory.

To kill your wife is bad enough, to do it with your kids near by and on a family vacation is really bad.

I am sure there is more to this story, but it is tragic for her family and her kids. He is going to rot in some prison or eventually off himself.

Gee, I wonder if this is the first time this shitbird hit a woman?

Don't know about first, but it's probably the last time.
