Arizona murder suspect, Corey D. Allen, arrested in Leadville

LEADVILLE, Colo. - After three months of investigating and tracking, U.S Marshals arrested a man in Colorado Friday that is wanted for a murder in Arizona.

Corey D. Allen, 28, was arrested in Leadville on a warrant for first degree murder and kidnapping.

Marshals said a woman called 911 in San Tan Valley, Ariz. in November and said a friend of hers was threatening her mother.

When deputies arrived, they found the mother,  Linda Perelli-Brown, shot multiple times.

A warrant was issued for Allen.

Allen was tracked to a home southwest of Denver, then Leadville, where he was arrested, the U.S Marshals Service said in a news release.

"We never stopped looking for him, and now we hope that Allen’s arrest can give some comfort to the Perelli-Brown family," said David P. Gonzales, U.S. Marshal for the District of Arizona.

Allen was booked into the Lake County jail, where he awaits extradition to Arizona.
