Comanche To Face Murder Charge 

The Stockton Kings’ G League player Chance Comanche, along with Sakari Harnden, is set to face open murder charges in connection with the death of a 23-year-old woman who had been reported missing in Las Vegas, as announced by the police on Sunday.

Shortly after his arrest, Comanche was released from the Stockton Kings, the developmental affiliate of the Sacramento Kings.

The arrest followed his participation in a G-League game in Henderson, Nevada, just 15 miles from Las Vegas, on the night before Marayna Rodgers was last seen and reported missing.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department revealed in a statement that the remains of Marayna Rodgers, a medical assistant from Washington state, were discovered in a desert area in Henderson, Nevada, where she was last seen.

After the arrest of Comanche and Harnden, detectives were able to obtain information leading to the recovery of human remains later confirmed to be those of Rodgers in the Henderson desert.

Marayna Rodgers disappeared on December 6 while on a trip to Las Vegas. She was last seen getting into a car with her friend, Sakari Harnden.
