Jennifer Hudson, Family Gets Some Peace After Balfour Conviction
The Verdict is in! On Friday (May 11), after deliberating for three days, a Chicago jury convicted Oscar/Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson's former brother-in-law, William Balfour, of murdering her mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew.

During the short trial, Hudson took the witness stand and expressed her harsh feelings for Balfour, who prosecutors’ labeled a jilted husband for his act of vengeance.

Receiving the guilty plea, Hudson was reportedly overwhelmed with emotions as tears fell from her eyes while she bit her lips.

Balfour, 31, who was the estranged husband of Hudson's sister, Julia Hudson, faces a mandatory life sentence in prison.
