Jennifer Hudson kin killer sentenced to three life terms in prison
UPI News Service, 07/24/2012
Jennifer Hudson was in a Chicago courtroom Tuesday for the sentencing of her former brother-in-law for killing her mother, brother and nephew.
William Balfour, who was married to Hudson's sister Julia, was found guilty in May of three counts of first-degree murder, as well as aggravated kidnapping, home invasion, residential burglary and possession of a stolen vehicle in the shooting deaths of members of the Hudson sisters' family.
Prosecutors argued Balfour, now 31, shot his victims to death in 2008 in a jealous rage because Julia had left him and was dating someone new.
