Flores is suspected of killing Ashley Doolittle, also of Berthoud, some time after the two broke up. Flores allegedly confessed to killing her because he was angry about the breakup.

Deputies in Mesa County arrested Flores near the town of Collbran on June 10, 2016. That’s where Doolittle’s body was found.

Flores remains in jail without bond. His defense attorneys say they will introduce evidence about Flores’ mental condition at the time of the murder.

  1. Randy Stein says:

    THEY’D be crazy to accept a insanity defense for him. He was angry she dumped him so he killed her then tried to hide the body – – and HE supposedly confessed to it.
