Extradition of Golf Course Shooting Suspect Could Take Up To 90 Days

Jacob Kober, Livermore man wanted in connection to the slaying of Robert Ogden was arrested in Oregon and has criminal case against him in Danville.

It could take up to 90 days for a Livermore man arrested in Oregon to be transferred back into California, officials said.

Jacob Kober, 24, was arrested earlier this month in Springfield, Ore., in connection to the slaying of Robert Ogden — who was found dead at the Springtown Golf Course by a jogger on the morning of Dec. 29. He had been shot multiple times, police said.

Kober has been in custody at the Lake County Sheriff's Department awaiting extradition and will be brought to San Rita Jail. Police said the extradition process can take up to nearly three months.

Livermore police believe Kober fled to Oregon after the Dec. 29 shooting. Kober and Ogden, 28, were acquaintances, authorities said.

Livermore police, citing an ongoing investigation, did not release what they believe was the motive for the killing.

Kober was a 2006 graduate of Granada High School, according to his Facebook page.

In June, Kober and two others were arrested in Danville on suspicion of burglary. Kober was charged with a probation violation, grand theft and possession of stolen property. He was also arrested on an outstanding felony warrant for burglary.

Isn't this an unusually long time for an extradition?

Absolutly ridiculous time frame, also by his past record sounds like he should have been in jail anyway, what the hell is wrong with all these people these days, killing others like it's nothing, rot in he.. Kober! Next thing we need is a clean sweep of Oakland OMG does anyone get tired of hearing EVERYDAY that someone else got shot on the news in oaktown, and usually innocent people like the 8 year old that got hit in the drive by, what ever happened to the good ol' days when guys took it outside and slung fists? All I can truly say is people who handle things with guns have no balls!

Maybe the Oregon convicts will do us a favor and shank this guy before we have to pay to warehouse him.

Geez what ever happened to innocent until proven guilty? The title says "suspect wanted for questioning" not this is the guy who did it. This is someone's son.. its sad to see such a mob mentality. SMH

Extradition between the states is regulated by the Constitution. There is a process that is required of the governor's office, the district attorney and the police here and in Oregon before he can be brought back to California. All of that is moot if he waives his extradition hearing.

Actually it states " Suspect wanted for MURDER or it says suspect wanted in connection of the murder" to tell u it pretty useless to stick up for the one who they caught in Oregon.

Miss Diaz, Apparently, you are the one with balls. Because it takes really big ones for someone to tell someone else to rot in HELL. Yes I said HELL miss big balls. Because that is where you are going for judging people. With your opinion of Mr. Kober, I am not surprised that you are saying that. It is only because he is incarcerated. You wouldn't have the balls to say it about him otherwise. The last time I checked. This was America. A place where you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. You think the time frame is ridiculous. Well, by holding him in another state while the police collect evidence and build their case keeps Mr. Kober from walking due to insufficient evidence. Especially since it is possible that they do not have enough evidence to hold him at this time. By them needing so much time, it tells me that Livermore's finest is keeping up with their impeccable track record. So what is really ridiculous is loser wannabe idiots like yourself who have to post their complaints because they think it makes them look smart. Yes complaining as you hide behind your computer and talk smack about anyone or anything that you have an uneducated opinion about. Maybe you should think before you speak Lil Miss Balls. It is a great way to keep from saying something stupid. That is if you are smart enough to know how stupid you really are.
