G League Player and Woman to Face Open Murder Charges in Missing Woman’s Death

G League player and woman to face open murder charges in connection with missing woman's death in Las Vegas.

Promising G League player, Chance Comanche, and a 19-year-old woman, Sakari Harnden, are set to face open murder charges in connection with the death of Marayna Rodgers, a 23-year-old woman who went missing in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department revealed on Sunday that Rodgers’ remains were discovered in a Henderson, Nevada desert area.

Comanche, 27, a Stockton Kings player, was apprehended in Sacramento County by FBI agents on Friday and is now held without bail. Harnden, 19, was arrested in Las Vegas last Wednesday on kidnapping charges and is currently detained on $500,000 bail.

According to Las Vegas police, Rodgers had a prearranged meeting with Harnden on December 5, accompanied by Comanche, her boyfriend. The trio met while Rodgers was out with friends, coinciding with the day the Stockton Kings played the G League Ignite in nearby Henderson.

Rodgers was reported missing on December 7, prompting an investigation that quickly led detectives to suspect foul play. Subsequent evidence resulted in the arrest of Harnden and Comanche for their alleged roles in the kidnapping and disappearance of Rodgers.

Comanche, a 6-foot-10 center, had been released by the Kings following his arrest. The former Arizona college basketball player, who had a brief NBA appearance with the Portland Trail Blazers on April 9, is scheduled for a court appearance on Tuesday, with extradition to Nevada pending.

This tragic incident has not only sent shockwaves through the basketball community but has raised questions about player conduct off the court, prompting authorities to pursue justice in the face of the heartbreaking loss of Marayna Rodgers.
