“Former NFL player Kevin Ware was indicted Thursday for murder and tampering with evidence, specifically a corpse, within the death of his girlfriend, Taylor Pomaski.
‘We appreciate everyone who has come forward to offer evidence and aid in our investigation,’ said Lacy Johnson, a chief prosecutor who’s handling the case. ‘Although this investigation has been happening since Taylor’s disappearance in 2021, the court process is just starting, and we encourage anyone who has knowledge about what happened between Kevin and Taylor to come back forward.’
If convicted of murder, Ware faces the possible sentence of 15 years to life in prison.
‘Prosecutors presented the evidence to a Harris County grand jury, which determined there was sufficient evidence for criminal charges,” said Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg. ‘We’ll follow the evidence wherever it leads and apply the law equally to all.’”
Kevin Ware played for the Washington Redskins (now Commanders) and San Francisco 49ers during his transient NFL profession. He showed promise as a player but played in only 16 total games through the course of his profession.
The 41-year old could face a life sentence in prison following these charges.
