GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in Glendale say a teenage girl is being held on suspicion of second-degree murder for allegedly strangling a man while having sex.

Jason Ash was found dead Saturday evening in a Glendale apartment. Police say the 43-year-old Phoenix man had a cord around his neck and several cuts on his body.

Police say a woman who lives at the apartment left her 16-year-old daughter alone with Ash.

The woman told police that she later got a call from her daughter saying that she and Ash had a consensual sex act involving strangulation and the man had died.

Police aren’t releasing the girl’s name because she’s a juvenile.

They say it’ll be up to the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office to decide if the teen will be tried as an adult.
