G League player and his girlfriend will be charged with murder in Las Vegas.

A woman’s body was discovered near Las Vegas earlier this month, and now a basketball player and his girlfriend have been arrested in connection with her murder, according to authorities. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police announced on Sunday that Chance Comanche, a player with Sacramento Kings’ G League affiliate, and his girlfriend Sakari Harnden, will face charges of murder and kidnapping in relation to the death of Marayna Rodgers. The 23-year-old Rodgers had been reported missing on December 7 and her remains were later found in Henderson, a Las Vegas suburb.

The authorities have not specified the cause of death or discussed any motives, but they stated that they suspected foul play and gathered enough evidence to arrest Harnden and Comanche. Harnden was detained in Las Vegas on Wednesday and is being held on a $500,000 bond. Comanche, on the other hand, was apprehended by the FBI in Sacramento on Friday and is currently in custody without bond. He is expected to be extradited to Nevada and has a court appearance scheduled for Tuesday in Sacramento.

Further information from the Clark County prosecutor’s office is currently unavailable, as is any response from the public defender’s offices in Las Vegas and Sacramento regarding legal representation for Comanche and Harnden.

Comanche had been playing for Stockton Kings, the NBA G League affiliate of Sacramento Kings, prior to his arrest. In 13 games, he averaged 14 points and seven rebounds. While he initially played college basketball at the University of Arizona from 2015 to 2017, he went undrafted in the NBA and signed a free-agent contract with the Portland Trail Blazers in April, where he appeared in just one game. Comanche was then signed by Sacramento in October but was waived after 10 days, leading him to join Stockton.
