Jennifer Hudson's Family Murderer Avoids Trial Again

The man responsible for murdering Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew has avoided trial yet again. According to, William Balfour was charged in the triple homicide in late 2008 and has been granted yet another continuance today.

Balfour has been in the Cook County jail in Chicago since he was arrested on December 1, 2008 for the murders of Jennifer’s mother Darnell Hudson Donerson, her brother Jason Hudson and her nephew Julian Hudson-King, who was only 7-years-old at the time of his death.

Balfour is the estranged husband to Jennifer’s sister Julia and was stepfather to her son, Julian. Before being arrested in 2008, he served almost seven years in prison for attempted murder and vehicular hijacking.

Poor Jennifer is just trying to move on with her life—she is engaged to David Otunga, they had a baby, and she’s lost a ton of weight and looks great. She and the rest of her family deserve to have all of this put behind them. With all the evidence against this guy we cant believe this is still going on almost two years later!
