Private memorial planned for slain Jennifer Hudson family members
UPI News Service, 10/30/2008
An invitation-only memorial service is being planned in Chicago for three slain members of singer-actress Jennifer Hudson's family, a funeral home said.
Hudson's mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew were recently shot to death in what police have described as "domestic-related" slayings.
The estranged husband of Hudson's sister Julia has been called a person of interest in the triple homicide and is being held on a parole violation. He has not, however, been charged in the family members' deaths.
The Chicago Sun-Times quoted the Hudson Funeral Home as saying the private memorial service will be held at 9 a.m. Monday at the Apostolic Church of God in Dorchester.
The newspaper said a representative from the funeral home is expected to announce Friday whether the family will hold a public service, as well.
The family has asked that, in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to the Hudson-King Domestic Violence Protection Fund, care of Seaway Bank and Trust, P.O. Box 19522, Chicago, Ill., 60619.
