Anthony Darnel McClanahan, a former professional football player accused of stabbing his wife to death in November 2017, was ordered to stand trial for murder during a court hearing in Park City, Utah, on Tuesday

A preliminary hearing was held Tuesday in Park City, Utah, for 47-year-old Anthony Darnel McClanahan, who is charged with the first-degree murder of Keri ‘KC’ McClanahan, 28.

During the hearing, three officers who responded to the murder scene at the Park Regency condominium on November 2, 2017, testified that they found Anthony McClanahan outside the building with blood on his face and hands, appearing to convulse.

‘I thought he was trying to fake a seizure,’ Park City Police Lt Vaifoa Lealaitafea said on the stand, according to the Deseret News

On Tuesday, prosecutors argued that an autopsy found KC McClanahan died of sharp injuries to the neck and the only DNA in the room belonged to the couple. They emphasized that surveillance footage shows no one matching the description of the men.

McClanahan has pleaded not guilty to a separate charge of kidnapping after police say he picked up his son from school in Arizona’s Maricopa County in October 2017 and took him to Salt Lake City, where police later found the child with him.

He is due back in court for arraignment on March 18.

After college, he was offered a try out with the Dallas Cowboys and remained with the team during the early 1990s. He never played an NFL game

He went on to play for the Calgary Stampeders for 4 years.
