Taylor Pomaski was found dead in Texas last year, and now her boyfriend, former National Football League (NFL) player Kevin Ware, has been indicted in her murder.

According to New York Post, Ware was also hit by a grand jury with tampering with evidence, specifically a corpse, charges. Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said that prosecutors presented the evidence to a Harris County grand jury, "which determined there was sufficient evidence for criminal charges." She added that they will follow the evidence "wherever it leads and apply the law equally to all.” The former footballer faces at least 15 years to life in jail.

As for his girlfriend, Pomaski was missing for seven months after she was last seen at a party at her Spring, Texas residence in April last year. Foul play was reportedly suspected in Pomaski’s disappearance. In June 2021, prosecutors identified Ware as a suspect. The remains of the 29-year-old were found in north Harris County last December.

Prosecutor Lacy Johnson said in Thursday’s statement that the probe has been going on since Pomaski went missing, reported NBC News. She said that they encourage anyone who has knowledge about "what happened between Kevin and Taylor to come forward."

Ware, 41, was already in a Texas jail before this indictment. The unrelated charges involved possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, according to PFT. A lawyer listed as representing the former athlete in that case did not comment on the indictment Thursday evening. The district attorney's office also did not share more details about the murder allegations against Ware.

The former footballer's long criminal history goes back to his time as a player at the University of Washington. At the time, he pleaded guilty to assault. He has had other charges since his NFL career ended. It includes another assault, intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance, and evading arrest. He played tight end when he was in the NFL for a short period of time. He spent a season with Washington in 2003 and with San Francisco in the following year. Since 2004, he has not played in the NFL.
