Arrest Made in Death of Eddy Curry’s Ex-Girlfriend

Police said Saturday they had arrested a suspect in the slayings of the former girlfriend of New York Knicks’ player Eddy Curry and their infant daughter.

Police spokeswoman Laura Kubiak confirmed Saturday that one person was in custody. She said charges were pending.

Kubiak said police believe the person under arrest killed Nova Henry, 24, and her 9-month-old daughter, Ava, who were found dead of multiple gunshot wounds in their apartment on Jan. 24. Curry was the biological father of Ava, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Henry was also the mother of the ex-Chicago Bull’s 3-year-old son. The boy was found unharmed at the scene.

Knicks spokesman Jonathan Supranowitz said by e-mail to The Associated Press that Curry had no comment.
