Former Kings G League player Chance Comanche appeared in a Las Vegas courtroom for the first time Tuesday to face kidnapping and murder charges in connection to the strangulation death of a 23-year-old woman.
Comanche, 27, was arrested Dec. 15 in Sacramento County by sheriff’s deputies and appeared briefly at the downtown jail Dec. 19 before being extradited to Las Vegas to face charges. He’s been charged with murder, kidnapping and conspiracy in the death of Marayna Rodgers, 23. In Clark County Justice Court on Tuesday, Comanche appeared in gray jail garb with his hands shackled in front of him.
He responded, “Yes, ma’am” to questions from a judge asking if he understood the charges levied against him, according to the Associated Press.
His co-defendant and ex-girlfriend Sakari Harnden, 19, also faces murder and conspiracy charges in Rodgers’ death and is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 8.
