Former NFL player Kevin Ware, 41, is facing a possible life sentence after being indicted in the death of his girlfriend.
29-year-old Taylor Pomaski went missing one year ago. She was last seen in April 2021 at a party at Ware’s home near Houston, Texas.
Law enforcement said she went missing under “suspicious circumstances.” Her remains were finally found in December as the investigation continued.
Ware is widely known for playing tight end for the Washington Redskins and San Francisco 49ers. He’s been charged with murder and tampering with a corpse.
“Prosecutors presented the evidence to a Harris County grand jury, which determined there was sufficient evidence for criminal charges,” Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said.
“We will follow the evidence wherever it leads and apply the law equally to all.”
Harris County prosecutor Lacy Johnson said, “We appreciate everyone who has come forward to provide evidence and aid in our investigation. We encourage anyone who has knowledge about what happened between Kevin and Taylor to come forward.”

Ware, 41, is currently being held in Montgomery County without bond on unrelated drug and weapons charges, KTRK reported.
The former NFL player was arrested in April after deputies said he was driving 115 mph.
Investigators said that deputies found cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamines in Ware’s possession, as well as a loaded AK-47 and a loaded 9mm pistol.
Ware, a convicted felon, was not given bond in the case for the “safety of the community,” the judge said.
If Ware is convicted of the murder of Pomaski, he could face 15 years to life in prison.
