GALVESTON, Texas -

(AP) - Relatives of one of two Houston women found dead near a garbage bin are offering different takes on the relationship between the woman and her father.
    
James Larry Cosby is charged with tampering with the evidence in the deaths of his daughter, Britney Cosby, and her girlfriend, Crystal Jackson, both 24.
    
Britney Cosby's mother, Loranda Remer, told the Houston Chronicle (http://bit.ly/1qGg3QV ) that the father had difficulty accepting that his daughter was gay and would "throw it in her face."
    
Annie Cosby, James Larry Cosby's grandmother, said her grandson and his daughter had a good relationship and he had no problem with his daughter's sexual orientation.
    
James Larry Cosby is being held in the Galveston County jail.
    
Jackson and Britney Cosby's bodies were found March 7 on Bolivar Peninsula, near Galveston.
