The Fort Collins teenager accused of killing his ex-girlfriend is back in Larimer County.

Tanner Flores, 18, was moved from Mesa County, where he was arrested last week, to Larimer County on Friday.

Flores was booked into the Larimer County jail on suspicion of murder in the first degree, felony murder and second degree kidnapping, according to the Larimer County Sheriff's Office.

No bond has been set in the case.

Flores' booking photo was released Friday by the Larimer County Sheriff's Office.

Flores was initially arrested June 10 after Ashley Doolittle's body was found in Collbran, near Grand Junction. Her body was found outside Flores' grandfather's home. The grandfather had passed away previously.

Flores told investigators he shot Doolittle near Carter Lake because he was angry with her, the arrest affidavit said.

Doolittle, 18, of Loveland, just graduated from Berthoud High School. She was an accomplished rider and competitor. She served as a Boulder County Fair and Rodeo Lady-in-Waiting and was planning to attend Colorado State University in the fall.
