William Balfour found guilty in Jennifer Hudson’s family murders

The tail of William Balfour, who stood accused of killing 3 family members of singer/actress Jennifer Hudson, has ended in a guilty verdict.
From the Chicago Tribune:
As Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Hudson stood in the silent courtroom Friday, shifting nervously from foot to foot, stardom and celebrity seemed worlds away.
For all the attention, awards and accolades, Hudson in that moment was a grieving daughter from the South Side waiting for justice, her family torn apart by a crime of unimaginable horror.
She bowed her head as the verdict was read, then broke into soft sobs as a Cook County jury convicted her former brother-in-law, William Balfour, of murdering her mother, brother and nephew in October 2008.
