Eddy Curry wins custody, grandmother refuses to give up child

A Cook County judge ordered that New York Knicks center Eddy Curry begiven custody of his 3-year-old son Noah, who was found in the roomwhere his mother and sister were murdered in January.

The grandmother of Eddy Curry's toddler son says she will not turn the boy over to and considers herself to be "on the run."

Yolan Henry, grandmother, said she plans to file an appeal with the appellate court tomorrow challenging this afternoon's court order giving Curry custody of the 3-year-old boy.

"I'm not trying to kidnap him," Henry said. "I'm trying to protect him."I feel
that it's unfair to subject this child to a turnover when he doesn't know the
parties he is being turned over to," she said. "We are forced to be fugitives."

Henry said she now understands that she could be jailed, but she feels she is protecting her grandson from another loss in his family. "Whatever was done today was done underhandedly," Henry said. "I spoke with Eddy Curry this morning and he assured me that it was not his intention to take my grandson from me."

Since the murders of her daughter and granddaughter, Yolan Henry said she hasn't received nor does she want any money from Curry. She said her concern is that her grandson would be traumatized by being turned over to a man "he has seen twice in his life."
