Update: Hudson Suspect Placed With Gun According To Witness

The convicted felon questioned in the killings of Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew is staying in prison after authorities say a witness reported seeing him with a gun. During a 35-minute hearing in Joliet on Monday, authorities decided there’s probable cause to hold William Balfour until a Dec. 3 hearing before the full Illinois Prisoner Review Board. Board Chairman Jorge Montes (HOR’-hay MON’-tehs) says the witness reported seeing Balfour with a gun that matches the description of the .45 caliber weapon used to kill Hudson’s family members. No one has been charged in the shootings, but authorities have called Balfour a “person of interest.” He was out on parole for a 1999 attempted murder conviction at the time of the shootings. Balfour is the estranged husband of Hudson’s sister, Julia. SRC: AP
