PHOENIX (AP) - A woman whose daughter was strangled in 2010 has filed a lawsuit claiming the death was because her daughter was an informant for the Phoenix Police Department.

Rachel Glass filed a lawsuit Tuesday claiming that police failed to adequately train, watch or protect her daughter, Nicole Glass, after recruiting her to be a confidential informant. She says a “reliable source” recently told her about her daughter’s involvement with police.

Nicole Glass and Melissa Mason, both 27, were strangled in a Phoenix home in 2010. Their homicide cases remain unsolved.

The Phoenix Police Department has released a statement denying Rachel Glass’s claims and saying investigators are working diligently to solve the homicide.
