PHOENIX -- A 43-year-old man killed over the weekend died while being strangled during sex, the Glendale Police Department said Tuesday.

Police were alerted to Jason Ash's death after receiving a phone call from the resident of an apartment in the 6200 block of W. Olive on Saturday.

The caller said she left Ash, 43, and her 16-year-old daughter in the apartment. She later received a call from her daughter that Ash had died while being strangled during a consensual sex act.

"He has several cuts on his body and also had a cord around his neck when he was discovered," said Glendale Police Sgt. Jay O'Neill.

The mother returned to the apartment to try and save Ash's life when her daughter fled. She later returned to a nearby apartment, where she was arrested.

The unidentified suspect admitted she strangled Ash during sex and also cut him. She was charged with second-degree murder.

It is unknown if the suspect will be charged as an adult or if the mother will face charges.
