Authorities to take handprints from suspect in Riley Fox case

July 14, 2010 (CHICAGO) Scott Eby is charged with murder and predatory criminal sexual assault. He has pleaded not guilty.

A judge granted a motion Wednesday for Eby to have his hands printed to investigators a more detailed image.

Riley Fox disappeared from her home in Wilmington in 2004. Her body was found in a creek a short time later.

The girl's father, Kevin, was charged originally and spent eight months in jail. He was released, however, after DNA evidence did not match his.

Eby will return to court for another hearing September 8.
