LAFAYETTE, Colo. (AP) - Police say an ex-husband is a person of interest in a bombing that seriously injured a Colorado woman and her current husband.
Authorities say 44-year-old Allyson Stone and 59-year-old Christopher Stone were hospitalized with burns after the blast Saturday in Lafayette. Police say the bomb was left beside their car in a paper bag with their names written on it.
The couple found the bag as they were preparing to drive to Boulder and put it in the car with them. Christopher Stone told police it exploded when his wife began to open it.
Lafayette Police Cmdr. Gene McCausey said Sunday that Allyson Stone's former husband, 55-year-old Michael Anthony Brittain, is a person of interest in the case. McCausey says authorities searched Brittain's home in the Denver suburb of Thornton on Saturday night. But he noted Brittain is not in custody.
A phone listing for Brittain could not immediately be found.
