CHICAGO (AP) A judge has denied bail for an attorney accused of killing New York Knicks' player Eddy Curry's ex-girlfriend and her infant daughter.

Fredrick Goings is charged with first-degree murder in the January shooting deaths of 24-year-old Nova Henry and her 10-month-old daughter, Ava.

In court on Monday, prosecutors called the baby Ava Curry Henry and later said they believe she was Curry's daughter.

Authorities say Goings and Nova Henry were romantically involved and that Goings represented Henry in a paternity case with Curry.

Prosecutors allege Henry tried unsuccessfully to end a romantic relationship with Goings and was disputing a $23,500 legal fee Goings had charged her.

Goings' attorney, John Lyke, says his client is innocent.
