Former NFL player Kevin Ware Jr. allegedly burned his girlfriend’s body after killing her, prosecutors said Wednesday.
The gruesome details of the murder of Taylor Pomaski were revealed in court documents as Ware was transferred to Houston’s Harris County jail to face charges in her murder, according to Click 2 Houston.
Ware, 42, was charged after the remains of Pomaski, 29, were found in Harris County in December. She had been missing for seven months after reportedly last being seen fighting with Ware at a party they were hosting.
Court documents filed Wednesday allege Ware burned her body after killing her. He is charged with murder and tampering with evidence — specifically the corpse, and faces up to life in prison if convicted.
Ware was reportedly being held north of Houston on unrelated drug and gun charges stemming from a 2019 arrest were he was allegedly busted with a loaded AK-47 and large amounts of cocaine and marijuana along with methamphetamine, according to the Montgomery County Police Reporter.
The one-time tight end had a brief career in the NFL nearly 20 years ago, playing short stints in Washington and San Francisco in 2003 and 2004.
