Thomas Valva, a New York City police officer accused of killing his 8-year-old son, resigned from the police department Wednesday. Authorities state that his son died after he was forced to sleep in a freezing garage at their Center Moriches home.
"He voluntarily resigned," Attorney John LoTurco said. "He executed paperwork in that regard today, which protects his benefits and his pension. There's no admission of any wrongdoing. It allows him to forgo any disciplinary hearing and in exchange, he will no longer receive any salary or any future benefits."
