The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has charged Kevin Ferron, 43, with attempted murder and domestic violence following his arrest Friday.

Paramedics responded to a medical call Friday afternoon on the 1100 block of 6th Street and discovered that Anna Koosmann, 38, had suffered severe head trauma. They called Santa Monica Police Department (SMPD) officers to the scene because Koosmann’s injuries appeared to result from criminal activity. Koosmann was transported to a local hospital in critical condition and her status has not changed since Friday.

Ferron, Koosmann’s boyfriend, was at their residence at the time and has been arrested multiple times in the past year for domestic violence. He was arrested as the primary suspect in the investigation Friday evening.

Ferron has been charged with attempted murder and inflicting corporal injury on a spouse/co-habitant after prior conviction. His bail was set at $2.33 million.

Ferron was arrested Sept. 18, 2018 on a misdemeanor charge and released on $30,000 bail. He was then arrested for a felony on Sept. 23 and released on $100,000 bail. On Dec. 25, 2018, he was arrested for a misdemeanor and released on $20,000 bail, and on Jan. 21, 2019 he has arrested for a felony and released on $50,000 bail.

According to Ferron’s LinkedIn account, he was previously the director of engineering at Zynga in San Francisco, where he helped create the popular game Words with Friends. He appears to have moved to Santa Monica sometime in 2017 and has since worked as a software engineering consultant.
