Jennifer Hudson May Be Star Witness In Her Family’s Triple Murder Case

By Radar Staff

The ordeal surrounding her family’s horrific murder is far from over for Jennifer Hudson as she may now be called to testify as a witness in court, Star magazine is exclusively reporting.

According to court documents obtained by Star, the 30-year-old Oscar winner could be called to testify against William Balfour, who currently sits behind bars for the horrific October 2008 slayings of Jennifer’s 57-year-old mother, Darnell Donerson, and 29-year-old brother, Jason, in their family home in Chicago. The body of her seven-year-old nephew was found nearby three days later.

Balfour, Hudson’s brother-in-law, pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree murder and home invasion and now his defense attorneys hope that shocking new evidence related to fingerprint tests will prove his innocence.
