DENVER (AP) -- A Colorado Springs woman is considered a person of interest in an investigation of phone calls that may have sparked a raid on a Texas polygamist group. She is also on a list of possible witnesses to testify against the church.
KUSA-TV and the Deseret News cite court documents listing Rozita Swinton as a witness in Texas' case against the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
Swinton faces misdemeanor charges in Colorado for allegedly making false abuse reports in another case.
Authorities said a phone number linked to Swinton was used to call a Texas crisis center that may have led to the raid where more than 460 children were removed from a polygamist compound in April. The children were later returned to their parents.
An Oct. 1 hearing is scheduled, challenging the search warrant on the church.
