JUNEAU, Alaska — A Utah man has agreed to plead guilty to second-degree murder in the death of his wife during a 2017 cruise to Alaska.
The plea agreement signed by Kenneth Manzanares states he and his wife, Kristy Manzanares, had been arguing about his behavior when she told him she wanted a divorce.
The document states that Manzanares acknowledged hitting his wife, seeing blood, striking her again and having no memory after that.
Manzanares previously pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder. A change of plea hearing is scheduled for Friday.
