Worcester mother sues police over confession

A Worcester woman charged four years ago with suffocating her 13-month-old son with a teddy bear has filed a federal lawsuit against the Police Department and officers she says coerced her into confessing. Nga Truong alleges malicious prosecution, false arrest and false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and civil rights violations in her complaint. Truong was 16 when she was accused of killing her son, Khyle, in 2008.

Police Chief Gary Gemme told the Worcester Telegram & Gazette that the lawsuit lacks merit.
