Muppets' Jane Henson dies

Jane Nebel Henson - who was married to the late Muppets creator Jim Henson and was instrumental in the development of the world-famous puppets - died Tuesday morning, a representative for the Jim Henson Company said. She was 79.

Henson died at her home in Connecticut after a "long battle with cancer," a written statement from the company said.
