CHICAGO, Feb. 13 (UPI) -- A Chicago attorney has been convicted of fatally shooting an ex-girlfriend of former Chicago Bulls player Eddy Curry and their infant daughter, officials say.

Frederick Goings, 40, was found guilty of two counts of first-degree murder in the 2009 deaths of Nova Henry, 24, and her 10-month-old daughter Ava, the Chicago Tribune reported Wednesday.

Goings had been Henry's attorney is a child-support case against Curry, prosecutor Jim McKay said, and the relationship developed into a romance that lasted two years.

When Goings billed her for $24,000 in legal fees, Henry sought another attorney to contest the charges, prosecutors said.

Henry took out an order of protection against Goings in 2007 after she said he threatened her and her son, Noah, but she let it expire, McKay said.
