Prosecutors said in a news release on 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, UT hotel with knife wounds to her throat. She leaves behind two children; a 9-year-old daughter and a 7-year-old son; McClanahan is neither child's father.

McClanahan, in a different incident, was charged Friday with child kidnapping. Authorities say the 46-year-old took his 8-year-old son from an Arizona school on October 3rd without the mother's permission, then traveled through Nevada and Utah. He was captured and arrested in Utah on October 12 and gave his son back. He bonded out of jail a week later.

There was a history of domestic violence in the relationship.

McClanahan is being held without bail and it's unknown if he has an attorney.

He was a linebacker at Washington State from 1991-1993.
