(Ventura, Ca) District Attorney Gregory D. Totten announced today that Eduardo Robles (DOB 10/29/87), of Fillmore, was convicted by a jury of first-degree murder for the killing of Benjamin Brown, of Oxnard.
On May 31, 2018, Robles, who had been drinking alcohol and using drugs, was driving his vehicle on Highway 126 when he intentionally rammed the car in front of him which was driven by Mr. Brown.
The impact caused Mr. Brown’s vehicle to veer across the highway and collide with a tractor-trailer. Robles was also convicted of attempted murder for the injuries caused to his passenger, Jose Gaspar of Fillmore.
According to Ventura County Senior Deputy District Attorney, Rameen A. Minoui, “Robles and Brown had no previous relationship. Mr. Brown, through not fault of his own, was murdered when Robles decided to intentionally ram his car into Mr. Brown’s vehicle in the afternoon hours.”
Robles faces a maximum sentence of 32 years to life in prison. The sentencing hearing is scheduled for December 5, 2018, at 9:00 a.m. in courtroom 45 of the Ventura Superior Court, County of Ventura.
