The man accused of murdering Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew goes on trial today, which Jennifer Hudson attended. William Balfour stands accused of slaughtering the singers mom, brother and nephew. Prosecutors believe the trigger for the killing was a balloon gift for Julia Hudson, Balfour’s ex and Jennifer’s sister [Who filed for divorce from Balfour a month ago].
