William Balfour, the man accused of murdering Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew, is receiving death threats.
According to Star, Balfour has been isolated in an Illinois prison due to the fact that other inmates want to attack him.
“It’s an unspoken rule that you don’t ask why someone was locked up, but everyone found out. Balfour was in a cell by himself,” a source told Star magazine. “He couldn’t handle anyone in the cell with him – they would’ve killed him. If you hurt a mother and child, somebody is gonna get you. You don’t mess with them.”
Balfour is due to face trial next month. He faces murder, aggravated kidnapping and home invasion charges.
