Suspect Arrested in New York Knicks Player's Ex-Girlfriend, Baby Slaying

Police in Chicago say they have arrested a suspect in the slayings of the former girlfriend of New York Knicks' player Eddy Curry and her baby.

Police spokeswoman Laura Kubiak confirmed Saturday that one person was in custody.

The spokeswoman says police believe the person under arrest killed Nova Henry and her infant daughter, Ava. They were found dead of multiple gunshot wounds in their apartment on Jan. 24.

Henry was the mother of ex-Chicago Bulls player Curry's 3-year-old son. The boy was found unharmed at the scene.

Knicks spokesman Jonathan Supranowitz says by e-mail to The Associated Press that Curry had no comment on the arrest.

Kubiak says she could not confirm details of the arrest.
