Niles Man Charged In Cruise Ship Death Of Granddaughter

A Niles man is facing charges following the cruise ship death of his granddaughter. A judge in Puerto Rico this week ordered the arrest of Salvatore Anello. He’s charged with negligent homicide in the July death of his granddaughter, 18-month-old Chloe Wiegand, of Granger, Indiana. Wiegand died on July 7 when she fell out of an 11th floor window. Anello had raised her up to the open window not realizing it was open. An attorney from the Wiegand family told reporters the criminal case pours “salt on the open wounds of this grieving family.” Anello is due back in court on November 20.
