An attorney for New York Knicks player Eddy Curry says a woman found slain in Chicago is Curry's former girlfriend and the mother of his 3-year-old son.

Attorney Kelly Saindon said Sunday in Chicago that Curry — a former player for the Chicago Bulls — is devastated by the slayings of Nova Henry and her infant daughter.

Curry's 3-year-old son was found unharmed at the scene.

Chicago Police spokeswoman Monique Bond says a relative found the bodies of 24-year-old Henry and her 9-month-old daughter, Ava, in their apartment Saturday evening.

No one had been charged in the case as of Sunday morning.

Bond says police believe the killings on the city's near South Side were the result of a domestic dispute, but she would not elaborate.
