A Texas grand jury on July 28 indicted former NFL player Kevin Ware , 41, for the murder of his girlfriend, 29-year-old Taylor Pomaski, as well as tampering with a corpse.
If convicted of murder, Ware faces 15 years to life in prison, according to Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg's office in Texas.
"He's never been held accountable," Pomaski's mother, Leslie Mandeville, told Fox News Digital of Ware and his history of run-ins with the law before he was accused of killing her daughter.
FORMER NFL PLAYER KEVIN WARE INDICTED FOR MURDERPomaski disappeared following a house party on April 25, 2021, but her remains were not discovered until May 2022.
When Mandeville initially filed a missing persons report on May 9, 2021, she went to Ware's house with police, who were questioning the former NFL player, to pick up her daughter's dog.
Eventually, Ware, Mandeville and police decided it was best to give the dog to Pomaski's family, Mandeville said.

Marshals Service arrested Ware in June 2021 on a bond violation after he failed to appear for supervision earlier in the year.
Ware is not the first former NFL player convicted of abuse or murder.
Mandeville hadn't heard from her daughter for a couple of weeks since the April 25 party where she was last seen.
