    Upon the arrival of fire and police personnel, the body of a 42-year-old woman was found inside a home. A silver 2008 Chevy HHR, with the license plate of 322-GQA, belonging to the woman was found to be missing...

    The article's been updated and the victim has now been identified:

    Upon arrival of fire and police personnel, the body of a 42-year-old woman, identified as Elizabeth Johnson-Miranda, was found inside the home.
    The two suspects are apparently still on the loose. One of them has a history of violence:


    Two years ago, Kasai Ciofassa and Breeanna Day were high school sweethearts, now one is in jail for attempted murder.

    Ciofassa, 19, was arrested early Friday morning by Pueblo police after Day claimed he tried to kill her.
    That was in 2009.

    Kasai Ciofassa and Donna Tortessi were arrested Tuesday in Denver. The victim's missing 2008 silver Chevy HHR was also found.

    Police say the pair took 42-year-old Elizabeth Johnson-Miranda's vehicle from her home. She was later found dead inside the house when officers responded to a call that smoke was coming from the home.

    Both suspects were arrested without incident on unrelated burglary charges. Ciofassa also has an unrelated motor vehicle theft charge. They have not been named suspects in the homicide.
