Former North River Boats owner charged with murder


Oregon boatbuilder Brian Brush was arrested on murder charges Friday in Long Beach, Wash.

Brush, 47, is the former owner of North River Boats of Roseburg, Ore. The company shut down operations last spring following an FBI investigation into allegations that the company illegally inflated its inventory to obtain millions in financing from Wells Fargo Bank.

North River Boats is now under the supervision of a state court receiver, according to a report from The Oregonian newspaper.

Brush reportedly shot 45-year-old Lisa G. Bonney of Long Beach. She was described as an "on again, off again" girlfriend. Brush shot her three times before being taken into custody by police without incident, the newspaper reports.
