INVERNESS, Florida (AP) - The mother of a 27-year-old Citrus County Sheriff's Office informer killed during a drug deal in 2012 has filed a wrongful death suit against the agency.

Wendy Moore says the sheriff's office failed to protect the identity of her daughter, Jamie Lee Seeger, on the night of July 25, 2012, when she was fatally shot inside her car.
