Former Dallas Cowboy suspected of killing his wife who lived in Arizona

Anthony McClanahan is suspected of killing 28-year-old Keri McClanahan, who was from Arizona, according to the county attorney.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A former professional football player has been named by Utah police as the prime suspect in his wife's killing.

Park City police said Friday that 46-year-old Anthony McClanahan is suspected of killing 28-year-old Keri "KC" McClanahan. According to the Summit County Attorney's Office, McClanahan's wife was found dead early Thursday morning at the Park Regency condominiums in Park City, Utah.  The apparent cause of death was knife wounds to her throat.

Keri McClanahan was from Arizona, according to the county attorney. A Facebook profile with a matching name says she lived in Glendale. 

The Deseret News reports prosecutors in Summit County, Utah, are reviewing possible charges against McClanahan.

He remained jailed in Utah on charges filed Friday related to the alleged kidnapping of his son from another relationship. The boy was taken from Arizona and later found with McClanahan in Salt Lake City. It isn't clear if he has an attorney who can comment for him.

McClanahan is from Bakersfield, California, and played at Washington State before a brief stint with the Dallas Cowboys. He then played four years in the Canadian Football League.
