On Thursday, former NFL player Kevin Ware was indicted for murder in the death of his missing girlfriend, Taylor Pomaski.
A Harris County grand jury also indicted Ware for tampering with a corpse. If convicted of murder, Ware faces the possible sentence of 15 years to life in prison.
“We appreciate everyone who has come forward to provide evidence and aid in our investigation,” said Lacy Johnson, a chief prosecutor in the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. “Although this investigation has been going on since Taylor’s disappearance in 2021, the court process is just beginning, and we encourage anyone who has knowledge about what happened between Kevin and Taylor to come forward.”
In April, officials confirmed that the human remains found back in December 2021 are those of Pomaski. She had last been seen alive at her boyfriend’s home in Spring on April 25, 2021. At the time, authorities with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said Pomaski disappeared “under suspicious circumstances.”
Ware, who played in the NFL in the early 2000s with Washington and San Francisco, was reportedly in a relationship with Pomaski. The couple had reportedly been fighting at the house party before her disappearance.
Ware spent two seasons in the NFL, playing for the Washington Football Team and San Francisco 49ers, before being released in 2004.
