Deal possible in slaying of 3-year-old Riley Fox, attorney says

Chicago Tribune
The man charged with the brutal 2004 rape and murder of 3-year-old Riley Fox is in negotiations with prosecutors about a deal that could have him pleading guilty Wednesday, his attorney said.

Convicted sex offender Scott Eby was arrested in May after DNA evidence linked him to the vicious slaying. He has since given a videotaped confession, an attorney briefed on the case has said.
