Eddie Curry is going back to court for custody of his son. The little boy witnessed the death of his mother and sister a few months back:
A Cook County judge told an attorney for former Chicago Bulls player Eddy Curry that the NBA player should appear next week at a hearing on custody of his son, who survived the January slaying of the boy’s mother and 10-month-old sister. Noah Henry was found bloodied but unharmed in the South Loop home in which his mother, Nova Henry, 24, and sister, Ava Curry-Henry, 10 months, who was Curry’s daughter, were slain Jan. 24. In a hearing today, Circuit Court Judge Thomas Kelly told Eddy Curry’s attorney, Kelly Saindon, that Curry should appear next Thursday for a hearing over whether he should be granted custody of his son.
Fredrick Goings, 36, of Chicago, an attorney and former boyfriend of Nova Henry, has been charged in the slayings. The boy is currently in the custody of his maternal grandmother Yolan Henry. In a hearing today at Cook County Domestic Relations Court, 50 W. Washington St., Yolan Henry’s attorney, Michael Kalcheim, told the judge that Noah’s maternal grandmother should be granted custody of the boy until the NBA season is over. Lester Barclay, an attorney appointed by the court to represent Noah’s interests, said he had concerns over whether the boy’s grandmother is truly the one caring for him during the day, and over the possibility the boy may have some developmental delays.
An agreement in place before Nova Henry’s death provided that Eddy Curry would gain custody of their children in the event of her death.
This is getting kind of crazy now. Grab the boy and place him in a stable environment so he can start healing. Poor kid.
