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 son, who was then 3 years old, was also in the home but wasn’t harmed.

Curry, who now plays in China, didn’t testify.

Henry’s mother, Yolan Henry, said expressed relief after the hearing, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

“I’m feeling elated. I can breathe,” she said. “I feel justice has been served.”

Yolan Henry testified that she found her surviving grandson, Noah, with the bodies of his sister and mother, and that he told her, “Fredrick did it.”

Attorneys for Goings maintained that he was innocent and said there was no physical evidence linking him to the killings.

    Lol! Now I’m really sorry about the baby, real sorry. But the mother had it coming! She obviously took up with this lawyer to forego paying for the proceedings against her ex. He thought he was going to share in that child support windfall, but once he finished all of the work on it, she didn’t need him no more and moved out! So seeing he got played like a sucka’ he fixed it so she would never benefit from her newfound wealth!haha! I’m only sorry for the baby. But this is what happens when we use children in our adult games! Like her getting pregnant in the first place to try an trap her an NBA player! Ha! Serves her right!
