The Utah man accused of killing his wife during an apparent domestic dispute aboard an Alaska-bound cruise ship in July has been indicted for her murder, federal officials announced on Thursday.

Kenneth Manzanares is charged with first-degree murder in the death of his wife, Kristy Manzanares, 39, who was found in her cruise ship cabin dead with a severe head wound on July 25.

“Blood was spread throughout the room on multiple surfaces,” with Kenneth covered in blood, federal court documents obtained by PEOPLE state.

Kenneth was arrested by federal officials the following day. While being processed by FBI agents, he allegedly said, “My life is over.”

On Thursday, prosecutors announced that he had allegedly “willfully, deliberately, maliciously, and with premeditation and malice aforethought” killed his wife.

According to an arrest affidavit obtained by PEOPLE, Kenneth allegedly told one witness in the immediate aftermath of the killing, “She wouldn’t stop laughing at me.”

Kristy and Kenneth, high school sweethearts, had been celebrating their wedding anniversary with their daughters and extended family on a week-long Princess Cruises voyage from Seattle to Alaska.

The ship had set sail from Seattle just two days before Kristy was killed, according to investigators.

Her slaying allegedly culminated a night of marital tension between the couple that began when Kenneth became belligerent at dinner, a family source, who was not on the boat, previously told PEOPLE.

“He had been acting terrible all night,” the source said, adding that at some point that evening, Kristy asked for a divorce. At that point, Kenneth allegedly “snapped” and killed her, the source said.

The couple’s apparent marital discord was news to the source, who said, “If they were having they never showed any of that to anyone else.”

 

Kristy’s cause of death has not yet been released, according to federal officials.

Her cousin Kasey Hunt told PEOPLE that Kristy “had a glow to her, and filled a room with life,” adding, “She was so damn nice to everyone, she was amazing.”

Kenneth has not yet entered a plea, according to the United States Attorney’s Office. The St. George News reported that he has no criminal history in Utah, according to state court records.

His attorney, Jamie McGrady, has declined comment to PEOPLE.

GoFundMe page has been launched to help with the family’s expenses.

When Chappi the hedgehog was faced with struggle, she didn’t back down — she pushed forward in a homemade wheelchair.

Chappi is one of several adorable hedgehogs on Instagram with an understandably large following.

Recently the little gal’s 4,000+ fans have been helping her work through a difficult time.

According to Laughing Squid, the Mexico-based hedgehog was diagnosed with Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome, a progressive neurological disorder that makes it hard for hedgehogs to walk.

Chappi did her best to stay active, but it eventually got to a point where she could longer walk on her own. The hedgehog’s human mom knew her beloved pet was a fighter, so she came up with a plan.

“As you know, my little girl can’t walk anymore, she is just too weak. We could see that she could move her little feet, so I decided to try making a wheelchair,” Chappi’s owner wrote in an Instagram post.

After some trial and error, Chappi’s mom found that Legos were a cheap and easy-to-use option when it came to hedgehog wheelchair construction. A tad more tinkering, and Chappi had a new set of wheels.

As the above video shows, Chappi is adjusting to the wheelchair well, and is back to moving around on her own again.

“She’s getting used to the chair, after almost 3 moths without walking. She’s a little fighter,” Chappi’s owner wrote on Instagram.

So let little Chappi, her fierce spirit and her mom be a reminder that even when your problems seems insurmountable, there is always a way to push through.

Former Vice President Al Gore has a singular piece of advice for President Donald Trump: Resign.

Joining the chorus of politicians who have denounced the president for the myriad political controversies that have transpired since Trump took office in January, Gore looked unflinchingly into the camera and told the president to “resign” in a video interview published Thursday by the British LADbible.

Gore, who went on to talk about the climate change crisis and global warming in the interview, didn’t elaborate on why he thought Trump should step down.  His comments came as the president faced widespread backlash for refusing to unequivocally lay blame for last weekend’s deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, with the neo-Nazis who marched through that college town wielding torches and weapons while shouting racist taunts.

This is not the first time Gore has spoken out against Trump. He’s also criticized the president for his decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement. 

After Trump’s move, Gore talked to PEOPLE in an exclusive interview about the consequences of ignoring the dangers posed by man-made pollution.

“What they are telling us now will happen in the future if we don’t stop using the atmosphere as an open sewer includes the threat that human civilization itself will be in danger,” said Gore, who met with President Trump and his daughter, Ivanka Trump, after the election to discuss climate change. “What the scientists told us 20 years ago has come true.”

When Gore made an appearance on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher earlier this month, he talked to Maher about that December meeting — saying that he thought “there was a chance he might come to his senses,” Politico reported.

But since becoming president, not only has Trump pulled the United States out of the Paris Agreement, but he is also moving to dismantle rules set up by the Environment Protection Agency regarding domestic regulations for vehicles and power plants.

 

In the LADbible interview, Gore also discussed his upcoming film An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power. The environmental activist encouraged people to see the new documentary — a follow-up to his 2006 Oscar-winning original documentary — that he said will “tell you everything you need to know about the climate crisis.”

He added that as citizens, Americans “have the ability to influence the political leaders that are supposed to be representing you and not representing the lobbyists and polluters.”

“I think the present government should be doing a whole lot more to solve climate crisis,” he said.
