JOLIET, Ill. (STMW) – The ex-wife of former Bull Eddy Curry has been charged with aggravated battery of a child.

Korie Kellogg, 30, of Mokena was charged with battering a child younger than 13 on April 4, her attorney, Jeff Tomczak, told Sun-Times Media.

On Wednesday, Will County Judge Richard Schoenstedt granted her request to see her 10-year-old son with Curry, based on recommendations of the Department of Illinois Children and Family Services, Tomczak said.

Tomczak said Kellogg hasn’t been indicted by a grand jury in the case. If she is indicted, he said he’ll fight the charges “vehemently.”

Mokena police could not immediately be reached for comment.

Kellogg and Curry began dating while sophomores at Thornwood High School in South Holland and married young. He served her with divorce papers in 2001 after he was drafted out of high school by the Bulls with the No. 4 pick in the NBA Draft, and while he and Kellogg were teenagers.

After four seasons with the Bulls, he played five seasons with the New York Knicks. He’s now a member of the Miami Heat.
