Former NFL player Kevin Ware was just charged for reportedly murdering his girlfriend.
Ware’s girlfriend Taylor Pomaski’s body remains were found months after she went missing last year.
After a year-long investigation, Ware was charged with murder and tampering with evidence that is a corpse.
Ware played tight-end for the Washington Redskins in 2003 and for the San Fransico 49ers in 2004.

WFLA had these details to report:
A former NFL player was charged with murder Thursday in the killing of his girlfriend, whose remains were found months after she was reported missing last year.
Kevin Ware, who played tight end in 2003 and 2004 for Washington and San Francisco, is also charged with tampering with evidence, specifically a corpse, in the death of Taylor Pomaski. If convicted of murder, he faces up to life in prison.
Pomaski, 29, was last seen in April 2021 at a house party in the Houston suburb of Spring. Her remains were found in December.
“We encourage anyone who has knowledge about what happened between Kevin and Taylor to come forward,” said Lacy Johnson, the prosecutor with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office handling the case.
Ware, 41, has been jailed since June 2021 in neighboring Montgomery County on unrelated drug and gun charges.

The New York Post got the scoop too:
Former NFL tight end Kevin Ware was indicted in the murder of his girlfriend, Taylor Pomaski, who was found dead in Texas last year.
A grand jury also hit Ware with tampering with evidence, specifically a corpse, charges.
“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 will follow the evidence wherever it leads and apply the law equally to all.”
Ware, who played for Washington and San Francisco from 2003 to 2004, faces at least 15 years to life in prison.
Pomaski was missing for seven months after she was last seen at a party at her home in Spring, Texas in April 2021.
Authorities reportedly suspected foul play in Pomaski’s disappearance while prosecutors identified Ware as a suspect in June 2021.
Is this just another case of an NFL player having CTE and going on a rampage?
