In community property states, normally inheritance is separate property and upon divorce will stay with the party that received the inheritance. When such inheritance is commingled then it moves from separate property to community property. When the property was placed in a joint tenancy then it was commingled and thus became community property. Unfortunately the property is most likely community property due to commimgling and subject to division to your spouse.
