A man arrested last week in the Ojai Valley is awaiting extradition by the US Marshal's Office for

one count of murder and one count of attempted murder in the state of Colorado. Greg Boren

was arrested in Meiners Oaks January 16, 2018 for narcotics violations and was booked at the

Pre-Trial Detention Facility in Ventura. He had no identification at the time, and he gave the

arresting deputy the name of Kyle Smith.

When his fingerprints were compared to the Department of Justice database, his true identity of

Greg Boren was revealed, coupled with the fact that he was wanted on two counts of attempted

murder in Colorado. Investigators have since learned one of Boren's victims has died of his

injuries, thus changing one of the charges to murder. Boren's local narcotics charges have been

dropped by the District Attorney's Office, clearing the way for his extradition to Colorado.

Boren's arrest stemmed from a traffic stop that took place when Deputy Kathryn Torres was on

routine patrol and observed a vehicle with expired registration tags.
