2009_01_26_henry.jpg Police have taken into custody an unnamed man for questioning in regards to Saturday's killing of Nova Henry and her 9-month-old daughter Ava. According to the Trib, the man "had a romantic relationship with Henry and served as a lawyer for her" and was taken into custody from a hotel in Michigan City, Indiana yesterday. Chicago Police Department spokeswoman Monique Bond didn't elaborate on the arrest, simply saying, "We can't comment on any arrests or confirm that the subject arrested in Michigan City is the target of this investigation. No suspects have been named, and detectives continue to talk to a number of people." Henry had filed an order of protection against the man in custody in April 2007 only to have it dismissed a few weeks later. Henry's son, three-year-old Noah, was found unharmed in the apartment, but is believed to have witnessed the murders and was left with the bodies for several hours before Henry's mother discovered them. Noah is Henry's son with ex-Bull and current Knick Eddy Curry.
