On the morning of Oct. 24, 2008, three and half years ago, Academy Award winning actress and singer Jennifer Hudson got the shock of her life when her mother, brother and nephew were killed in a triple homicide that made national headlines and left the Chicago songstress heartbroken.
The suspect is Jennifer’s sister Julia’s estranged husband, William Balfour, who is currently on trial for the triple slayings and has pleaded not guilty, but faces life in prison if convicted.
Prosecutors say Balfour committed the murders in a jealous rage because Julia had a new boyfriend. It has been three years since the Hudson family lost their loved ones, but the pain remains and the trial is only just beginning.
Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the Hudson family through this difficult time.
