Grandfather Pleads Guilty In Granddaughter’s Cruise Ship Death

Guilty to a charge of negligent homice. That is the plea deal for the grandfather of an area toddler in Puerto Rico for her death on a cruise ship in July 2019. Salvatore Anello is hoping the plea can end his family’s “nightmare” over the passing of 18-month-old Chloe Wiegand. She fell roughly 150 feet from an open window when the two of them went to knock on the glass that wasn’t there. In a statement earlier this year, Anello said he was not drinking and was not dangling her from a window, adding they had just gone to do what they had done many other times. He will be sentenced in December.
