Today (Friday) marks the 5th day of the William Balfour trial in Chicago. William Balfour,as we all know, is accused of murdering Jennifer Hudson’s mom, brother and little nephew back in October 2008.Ms. Hudson has not missed one day of the trial, people! She bravely sat through about 30 minutes of her own testimony on Monday as she recounted times with her mom , brother and 7 year old nephew, Julian, whom she affectionately nicknamed her “huggy bear.”
Balfour was still married to Jennifer’s sister at the time of the murders, but, the two were reportedly estranged. According to reports, Jennifer Hudson testified how no one in the Hudson family cared for William Balfour, stating they didn’t like the way Balfour treated her sister and nephew, Julian. Of course, Jennifer broke down several times in tears, recounting the events leading up to her family’s murder. After her turn on the stand, Jennifer rejoined her family in the audience.
On Wednesday, the two sisters stayed out of the courtroom as evidence of the crime scene was presented to the jurors. The pictures were horrendous and brutal recites one report …my heart goes out to the Hudson family having to relieve this terrible nightmare…
Thrusday, an eyewitness to William Balfour’s intent to commit murder took the stand to verify how Balfour was seen with the same gun used in the Hudson’s murder two months before the crime. Seemingly, the witness states Balfour made threats against his estranged wife at least ten times…the defense is attempting to cast doubt on the case against Balfour, questioning Jennifer’s brother involvement in drugs might have played a part in the murder of her family. “Are you serious!?
For those of you reading this report and those who have suffered a loss at the hands of another ( Trayvon Martin’s family) why not send your condolences and support to The Hudson’s during this difficult time!?
