NASHUA, N.H. -- A New Hampshire woman charged with second-degree murder in a fatal crash that followed an argument over the Yankees and Red Sox says her statements to police were coerced and can't be used as evidence.
Forty-four-year-old Ivonne Hernandez of Nashua was arrested in the May 2008 confrontation that killed 29-year-old Matthew Beaudoin. She could face life in prison if convicted.
The Telegraph reports Hernandez argues a detective lied to her, implying that Beaudoin was still alive, and told her what to say about the crash.
The detective testified that Hernandez said she gunned the engine and drove toward a group of people who were hitting her car and jumping on it.
Hernandez had a Yankees sticker on her windshield. New Hampshire is Red Sox country.
A hearing is scheduled for Nov. 9.
