Police have arrested a suspect in the killings of former Chicago Bulls player Eddy Curry’s ex-girlfriend Nova Henry and their baby daughter Ava. Chicago authorities aren’t yet identifying the man, but Nova’s mother tells Chicago Breaking News that it’s one of Nova’s ex-boyfriends. “I always had a feeling it was him,” she said. “He told me that was what he was going to do. I never thought he would.”

Nova obtained an order of protection against the ex-boyfriend in April 2007, after he allegedly threatened her and her son. But as recently as September, the man represented Nova in a paternity case against Curry. Court records show he’s been arrested in other domestic battery cases. (More Eddy Curry stories.)
