Man charged in two slayings

February 23, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

A 36-year-old lawyer fatally shot the former girlfriend and infant daughter of New York Knicks player Eddy Curry during a domestic-related dispute, authorities said.

Fredrick Goings of Chicago was charged with two counts of first-degree murder, said Sally Daly, a spokeswoman for the Cook County state's attorney.

Police said Goings was arrested Friday evening.

The bodies of 24-year-old Nova Henry and her 9-month-old daughter, Ava, were found in their Chicago apartment Jan. 24.

Both died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Henry also was the mother of Curry's 3-year-old son, who was found unharmed at the scene.
