AceShowbiz - Kevin Ware's girlfriend and her family are closer to getting the justice they deserve. It was unveiled that the former NFL star has been indicted on charges of murder and tampering with evidence, specifically a corpse, in the death of Taylor Pomaski.
"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 told the press. "We will follow the evidence wherever it leads and apply the law equally to all."
Meanwhile, a chief prosecutor in the Harris County District Attorney's office, Lacy Johnson, said, "Although this investigation has been going on since Taylor's disappearance in 2021, the court process is just beginning," Lacy added, "We encourage anyone who has knowledge about what happened between Kevin and Taylor to come forward."
"We encourage anyone who has knowledge about what happened between Kevin and Taylor to come forward," the statement, released on Thursday, July 28, further read.
Taylor was last seen at a party at her Spring, Texas home on April 25, 2021. In the following month, her family reported her missing and "possibly endangered," according to a Harris County Sheriff's Office news release.
Police had not found Taylor's trace until December that year. At that time, Harris County Sheriff's Department discovered human remains, which were later identified as belonging to Taylor at the end of April.
Kevin has been detained in Montgomery County Jail. If convicted, the athlete faces a potential sentence of 15 years to life in prison, according to the Harris County District Attorney's office.
When Kevin was arrested in June 2021, one of Taylor's friends told KRPC 2 that he hoped people with information about her disappearance would grow more. "It feels good to reach a milestone like that, to make sure he stays in jail," Eric Zuleger told the outlet at the time. "But what would really feel good is if we knew where Taylor was and if he was a decent person, he would tell us because he knows exactly what happened and where she is and he's holding that from the family."
