Jennifer Hudson is in Chicago dealing with the trial of William Balfour, the suspected killer who murdered her mother, brother and nephew. She has already testified and she forced herself to listen to the painful testimony from the police officer who found her relatives at their family home, however on Tuesday she had to walk out of the courtroom when crime scene photos were shown to the jury AND when the forensic expert took the stand. Can you imagine? Ugh. Heartbreaking.
Balfour, the estranged husband of Hudson’s older sister Julia, has pleaded not guilty to murdering Hudson’s mom, brother and seven-year-old nephew Julian King, who was his step-son. The child’s body was found three days later in an abandoned SUV.
Ugh. My heart just breaks for Jen. Sure she can’t bring her relatives back and the killer can’t take away the memories, but here’s hoping that justice is served. Does anyone else think Mr. Balfour going to get life with no parole?
