Veteran Pima County Attorney's Office prosecutors Rick Unklesbay and Nicol Green recently received an award from the National District Attorney's Association for their work on a high-profile murder prosecution.

The two were given the "Homerun Hitters" award at a National District Attorney's Association event in Denver last month.

Unklesbay and Green successfully prosecuted former Tucsonan Pamela Phillips for the murder of her ex-husband Gary Triano in 1996. Nearly 18 years after Triano's death, Phillips was found guilty of the murder in Pima County Superior Court in April following a nearly two-month long trial.
