Jennifer Hudson Family Murder Trial: Closing Arguments From Prosecution Begin


CHICAGO (AP) – A prosecutor began her closing arguments in the trial of a man charged with murdering three of Jennifer Hudson‘s family members by showing jurors photos of the smiling victimsbefore their deaths.

State’s attorney Jennifer Bagby then showed the Chicago jury crime scene photos of the bloody, bullet-riddled bodies of Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew. She pointed at defendant William Balfour and told jurors that he murdered the three.

The acclaimed actress and singer hung her head while the grisly photos were displayed and her long hair spilled over her face.

Jurors listened intently and many of them took notes.

Balfour’s attorneys are expected to make their closing arguments later Wednesday before the case goes to the jury.
