LAS CRUCES - The female officer strangled and tied up in a closet during an escape by two south county teens from a state-operated detention center may sue the state following her termination Thursday.

Elizabeth Estrada, 28, is alleging the state wrongfully terminated her, defamed her and negligently mismanaged the J. Paul Taylor Center, according to a tort claim notice served Friday afternoon.
