WINCHESTER BAY, Ore. (AP) — A woman slain on the southern Oregon coast has been identified as a California resident.

The Douglas County Major Crime Team says 57-year-old Kirsten Elaine Englund of Castro Valley, Calif., was found dead Sunday at the Winchester Bay Wayfinding Point, located along U.S. Highway 101 about three miles south of Reedsport.

Jeffrey Boyce of North Bend, Ore., has been described by police as the prime suspect in the case. He was arrested in Northern California late Monday after allegedly carjacking a man at gunpoint.

Englund's relatives released a statement Thursday saying they are devastated by the "heinous, cowardly and senseless crime."

Her brother-in-law told a newspaper this week that Englund had driven to Oregon to visit a son.
