William Balfour Found Guilty in Jennifer Hudson Family Murder Trial

William Balfour and Jennifer Hudson

William Balfour, the man accused of murdering Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother, and 7-year-old nephew, has been found guilty.

The verdict was announced just moments ago in a Chicago courtroom, reports TMZ. After two days of deliberations, a jury convicted Balfour in the 2008 triple murder case.

Jennifer Hudson was present in court as the verdict was read.

Balfour faces life in prison.

UPDATE: Jennifer Hudson and her sister Julia have released the following statement:

We have many people to thank but our first thank you is to God, always. We are so grateful to prosecutors James McKay, Jennifer Bagby and Veryl Gambino and State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez and her team for their dedication and tireless work from the beginning. We have the best police department and they have been with us every step of the way. We thank all of the State’s witnesses who came forward on our behalf. We have felt the love and support from people all over the world and we’re very grateful. We want to extend a prayer from the Hudson family to the Balfour family. We have all suffered terrible loss in this tragedy. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled in them that perish: in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not dawn upon them (2 Corinthian 4:3-4). It is our prayer that the Lord will forgive Mr. Balfour of these heinous acts and bring his heart into repentance someday.

    Life in prison would be an appropriate punishment. I will never understand why people kill other people…

    I still think Superstar Jay did the crime…he has more of a motive (she split with him after 17 years and NO ring, while she and Otunga got engaged a month before the murders).
