All things considered, this isn’t the stupidest murder a black has ever done.
It looked like an accident and the body could’ve just floated out to sea or gotten eaten by sharks or whatever.
A Kansas man has been charged in federal court with killing a woman earlier this year aboard a Carnival cruise ship, federal prosecutors announced Thursday.
Eric Newman, 53, of Topeka, Kan., was indicted for second-degree murder. The U.S. Department of Justice said in a statement that Newman is accused of killing his wife, who was identified in court records as Tamara Tucker, 50, of Lawson, Mo.
The indictment said Newman was traveling with Tucker on board a cruise ship called the Carnival Elation on Jan. 19. The ship was scheduled to depart from, and later return to, Jacksonville, Fla.
Court records didn’t specify Tucker’s cause of death, though a statement from a Carnival Cruise Line spokesman said a woman aboard the Carnival Elation on Jan. 19 “fell from her balcony to several decks below” and died.
