Alleged Domestic Dispute aboard Carnival Elation Results in Death

FBI agents boarded Carnival Elation when it returned to San Diego this morning. Carnival had contacted the FBI Tuesday evening to report that a woman was apparently killed by her husband during a domestic dispute in their cabin.

The incident occurred after the ship left Cabo San Lucas on Tuesday when the ship was in international waters. The FBI and the US Coast Guard were advised on Tuesday. The man was taken into custody by Carnival personnel and held aboard the ship. Carnival Elation spent the day at sea on Wednesday, and arrived back in San Diego this morning.

Carnival Elation had departed San Diego on Saturday, July 11 on a 5-day cruise to Baja California.

Details will be in today's edition of Cruise News Daily.
