El cuñado de Jennifer Hudson fue arrestado por el asesinato de la madre, el hermano y el sobrino de la ganadora del Oscar por DreamGirls. William Balfour es el ex esposo de la hermana de Hudson, Julia y en la corte se presentaron evidencias de que Balfour  posee un arma de igual calibre que la usada el 24 de Octubre en el asesinato de los familiares de la actriz, incluyendo su sobrinito de siete años.

Chicago police said today they have arrested William Balfour for the murders of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson‘s family members.

Balfour, 27, has been in custody in Stateville Correctional Center on a violation of parole and was transferred to Chicago police custody after police served a warrant for his arrest Monday. He was then transported to the Wentworth Area, where he will be held pending charges approved by the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office.

At a closed hearing last month, investigators presented evidence that Balfour had a gun matching the weapon used in the Oct. 24 slayings of Hudson’s mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew.

Balfour is the estranged husband of Hudson’s sister, Julia. He was scheduled for another parole violation hearing on Wednesday.  Chicagotribune.com
