CHICAGO—A jury has convicted a Chicago attorney of murdering former NBA center Eddy Curry’s ex-girlfriend and infant daughter four years ago.
Fredrick Goings showed no reaction when the jury’s guilty verdict was read Tuesday in the January 2009 shooting deaths of 24-year-old Nova Henry and her and Curry’s 10-month-old daughter, Ava.
Goings represented Henry in a child custody case against the former Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks and Miami Heat center and was also romantically involved with her. Prosecutors say Henry tried to end her relationship with Goings and moved out with her and Curry’s two children.
They say Goings shot Henry in her home while she was holding the infant. Her and Curry’s then-3-year-old son was there but wasn’t harmed.
Curry didn’t testify. He now plays in China.
