CHICAGO (AP) - A Chicago attorney accused of killing New York Knicks player Eddy Curry's ex-girlfriend and their infant daughter has pleaded not guilty.
Fredrick Goings is charged with first-degree murder in the January shooting deaths of 24-year-old Nova Henry and 10-month-old Ava. The 36-year-old entered the plea at an arraignment Thursday.
Defense attorney John Lyke withdrew from the case, saying Goings can't afford a private lawyer. The judge ordered Goings to file an affidavit proving he can't before he'll get a public defender.
Authorities say Goings and Henry were romantically involved and Goings represented Henry in a paternity case with Curry. Prosecutors allege Henry tried unsuccessfully to end a romantic relationship with Goings.
