PHOENIX (AP) - Melissa Mason was two months pregnant, and her roommate Nicole Glass wanted to marry soon and have a baby of her own.

Their hopes ended more than a week ago when both were strangled to death in the Phoenix home that the roommates shared.

Phoenix police have no suspects and have exhausted all their leads, leading the women's families to plead with the public Monday to help find out who is responsible for the killings.

A reward of $1,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest, but that amount is expected to increase.

Mason and Glass, both 27, were found dead by a friend Dec. 3, and police believe they were killed no earlier than 8 p.m. the day before.
