Gregorio Felan, 47, was arrested Tuesday evening by Borger Police and Texas Rangers. He is charged with Murder, a felony of the first degree. Police say he was a neighbor of the woman who was killed, 97-year-old Lois Kimbrell.
It was Thursday, April 21, when Borger Police were called to the 100 block of Garrett Street in reference to an unattended death. The call was made by a citizen from Meals on Wheels. Officers discovered Kimbrell inside the resident deceased.
