Jennifer Hudson's estranged brother-in-law killed three family members because he was angry the singer's sister was dating another man, according to Chicago prosecutors.


Cops say 27-year-old William Balfour showed up at the Hudson family home the morning of  October 24 and confronted his estranged wife Julia Hudson. According to prosecutors, Balfour and Julia left the house together, but Balfour returned later. The bodies of Hudson's mother and brother Jason were found there later that day, shot to death inside the house. Prosecutors say Balfour has confessed to the crime.

The body of Julia's 7-year-old son Julian King was found murdered in an SUV on a Chicago street three days later.

Balfour's attorney insists he's innocent. A judge denied bail Wednesday.

I honestly think the GANG MEMBERS KILLED THIS FAMILY. I think Balfour is scared to death that if he doesnt take the rap for it, HIS MOTHER AND FAMILY AND HE WILL BE KILLED TOO!!! H e probably owed money and the gang threatened the family and came through with it. I too, find it hard to believe he killed them and the little boy. But I feel like a GANG could do it!
