HUDSON FAMILY MURDER TRIAL:<br />
Balfour Guilty on All Counts

A Chicago jury has found William Balfour of murdering Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew in 2008. The 30-year-old was accused of killing the family over jealousy after hearing that his estranged wife, Julia Hudson, Jennifer Hudson's sister, was dating another man. 

It took 18 hours of deliberation to find Balfour guilty on all counts of first-degree murder. He faces life in prison. 

Jennifer Hudson, her fiance David Otunga and her sister, Julia Hudson, were present for the reading of the verdict.
