Jennifer Hudson’s family murders: William Balfour gets three life sentences

26 July 2012
William Balfour received three life sentences without possibility of parole for the 2008 murders of Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew. According to the Chicago Tribune, Judge Charles Burns added 120 years onto the three consecutive life sentences for the additional felonies of home invasion and aggravated kidnapping. Back in May, a jury convicted Balfour of fatally shooting Hudson's 57-year-old mother, Darnell Donerson, and her 29-year-old brother, Jason Hudson, in the family's South Side Chicago house, and then kidnapping and killing seven-year-old Julian King.
