CHICAGO — A woman who spent nearly three decades in prison for a murder she did not commit has filed a federal lawsuit against the Chicago Police Department and several individual officers, including a disgraced former detective accused of framing dozens of innocent people.

The 13-count civil complaint filed Monday in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on behalf of Marilyn Mulero, 52, alleges that detectives Reynaldo Guevara and Ernest Halvorsen and other officers engaged in a "number of unconstitutional and egregious acts" and coerced a false confession from Mulero.
