Navajo weaver killed a day before divorce was final

Authorities in three states are searching for the husband of Anita Tsosie, an award-winning Navajo weaver who was found dead in her home a day before the couple's divorce was final.

Tsosie, 48, was found shot to death in her home in Cortez, Colorado on Monday. She had taken out a temporary restraining order against Herman Tsosie, whose age has been reported at 53 and 54.

Authorities say Herman Tsosie may be driving a 1995 white Ford F350 four-door crew-cab truck with silver stripes. Cortez is located in the Four Corners area, and the search is focusing on Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona.
