As you will recall, the bodies of Henry and her daughter, Ava, were found in their Chicago apartment on Jan. 24. Both died of multiple gunshot wounds.Police said Goings and Henry had “a relationship” and the motive for the shooting was “domestic related” but declined to elaborate.
According to police, Nova Henry let Goings into the apartment on Jan. 24 and the two quarreled. Only a real cruel person can turn the gun on an innocent baby. I hope he rots in prison, where he belongs. Another unscrupulous lawyer. This is another case of domestic violence and it is pathetic. There needs to be stiffer laws concerning domestic violence. This woman and her daughter did not deserve this barbaric treatment at the hands of this man.
