Newport Beach police have arrested the boyfriend of a 24-year-old woman who was shot to death aboard a cabin cruiser Wednesday evening.
Allan V. Colin, 34, of Newport Beach was arrested in connection with the slaying by officers responding to a gunfire report at the De Anza Bayside Village marina, a police spokesman said.
The woman, a Newport Beach resident, was found on the boat, a victim of a gunshot wound. Her identity was not released pending notification of family.
The couple had been seen arguing earlier Wednesday while they made preparations to put to sea aboard a 26-foot cabin cruiser, according to Randy Mettler, who has a boat moored directly opposite the couple's boat.
