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.
