Guilty Verdict in the Hudson Family Murder Trial

"Think Like a Man" Los Angeles Premiere - Arrivals

The jury delivered their verdict today announcing that William Balfour, Jennifer Hudson’s ex-brother-in-law, is guilty of three counts of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of Darnell Donerson, Hudson’s mother, Jason Hudson, her brother, and Julian King, her 7 year old nephew which took place back in October 2008. Jennifer sat silently with her sister, Julia Hudson, along with her fiance David Otunga, and other family members as the verdict was read out. In addition to the murder charges, Balfour was also found guilty of home invasion, residential burglary, aggravated kidnapping, and possession of a stolen vehicle. All in all he is facing life in prison.Unfortunately though, Balfour and his attorney plan to appeal the conviction on June 8. Well for now I hope that the Hudson family can gain some peace from the conviction.
