Jennifer Hudson's sister testifies about husband's jealousy at trial in family's slaying
CHICAGO (AP) ' The sister of Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson says her ex-husband was so prone to jealousy he even became angry at her son.
Julia Hudson testified Monday in the trial of the man accused of killing her mother, brother and 7-year-old son in a jealous rage four years ago. Her famous sister, Jennifer Hudson, testified earlier in the day.
Julia Hudson told jurors that William Balfour at times became angry when her son, Julian King, kissed his mom.
Prosecutors also gave jurors the first glimpse at the gun they say was used in the killings.
Julia Hudson testified that it was her brother's gun that Balfour allegedly stole months before the killings.
Balfour has pleaded not guilty to three counts of first-degree murder in the October 2008 slayings.
