William Balfour Arrested for Hudson Murders
Jennifer Hudson's estranged brother-in-law, William Balfour was arrested today for the murders of Jennifer's mother, brother and nephew.

Although formal charges haven't been filed yet, Balfour was transferred from Stateville Correctional Center in Illinois to Chicago police custody after police served a warrant for his arrest Monday, says police spokeswoman Monique Bond.

During a hearing last month, investigators presented evidence that Balfour had a gun matching the weapon used in the Oct. 24 slayings of Hudson's mother Darnell Donerson, 57, brother Jason Hudson, 29, and his own stepson, Julian King, 7.

It's such a tragic story, there really isn't much to say about it other than our condolences go out to the family. We'll get you guys more updates about his arrest and punishment soon!
