SPOKANE, Wash. -- Investigators say a Montana woman was able to call both her husband and police after she was kidnapped and forced into the trunk of her car before she was killed by her abductor.
 
Authorities have identified the woman as 47-year-old Rita Maze of Great Falls.
 
Her body was later found in the trunk of her car in Spokane, Washington.
 
Maze was initially reported missing from Montana Tuesday morning by her husband. Officials believe she was abducted before noon on Tuesday near Wolf Creek. Maze called her husband from the trunk of her car and said a man hit her on the head and that she was now in the trunk of her car.
