Slain Navajo student being laid to rest in New Mexico

Mia Henderson, an 18-year-old Navajo girl who was killed at the University of Arizona, will be laid to rest today in New Mexico.

Henderson was a freshman at UA. Her roommate, Galareka Harrison, has been charged with first-degree murder for allegedly stabbing Henderson to death.

Henderson and Harrison,, also 18 and Navajo, had been living together for less than three weeks when the incident occurred. Henderson accused Harrison of theft -- which Harrison reportedly admitted to after Henderson went to the police.

Harrison allegedly told police that she stole Henderson's Social Security card, a debit card issued through the university and a check. That was on August 28, a few days before the September 5 stabbing.
