Months after a Toronto man was convicted of sexually assaulting and killing Tess Richey, the young woman’s family is suing him, police and others over the psychological devastation they suffered as a result of her death. Richey’s mother, Christine Hermeston, and her sisters allege Kalen Schlatter — who was convicted of first-degree murder in March — ought to have known his actions would inflict humiliation, injury and death on Richey, and cause her relatives mental and emotional distress.
