William Balfour Found GUILTY In Hudson Family Murders!

William Balfour has been convicted of the murders of actress Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew.

Hudson bowed her head as jurors entered the courtroom around 4:40 p.m. The Academy Award-winning actress, who attended each day of the trial, leaned forward when the verdict was read and softly cried as her fiancé comforted her and family members squeezed her shoulders.

When jurors walked out of the courtroom, Hudson stood on tiptoe to watch them.

The family of Balfour cried on hearing the verdict. He faces mandatory life in prison.

The verdict came less than three hours after jurors sent out a note telling the judge they were split but still trying to reach a decision. Jurors gave a breakdown of their votes but Judge Charles Burns did not disclose it.

A second note, issued at the same time, asked for all available evidence about the “cell phone tower coverage.” The note concluded by saying “we are trying,” an apparent reference to their continued talks.

The judge agreed to send back a transcript of the testimony of FBI Special Agent Nikki Skovran, who performed a forensic analysis of Balfour’s cell phone from the day of the murders that placed him near the Hudson home around the time the victims were shot.

“With regard to the first question, please continue to deliberate,” Burns wrote.
