Four years after the murder of Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and newphew, the killer, William Balfour, was sentenced to three consecutive life sentences and 120 years for the additional convictions for home invasion, possession of a stolen motor vehicle and aggravated kidnapping.
Of course he has NO CHANCE of getting parole.
This fool even had a nerve to try and apologize. According to the Chicago Tribune he said:
“My deepest sympathies go to Julian King,” he said of Hudson’s 7-year-old nephew, the boy with the big smile who looked up to Balfour, his stepfather. “I loved him. I still love him,” Balfour said as he looked across the packed courtroom toward his own family, not at the Chicago superstar or her relatives seated across the aisle.
For a moment, the courtroom froze. Balfour’s sister, Sensuous, burst into tears and ran out a side door. Across the aisle, Jennifer Hudson and her sister, Julia, Balfour’s ex-wife, sat side by side, clutching tissues and dabbing at their eyes.
Julian’s father, Gregory King, sat hunched over on the witness stand and appeared to fight back tears as he recalled the desperate three-day search for the missing boy that ended when his body was found inside Jason Hudson’s stolen SUV on the West Side. Like the other two victims, he had been shot to death.
“Instantly it was like a chunk of my heart was ripped out,” he said. “I felt hopeless. I was filled with rage for William Balfour, the man who murdered my son.”
Such a sad situation but we’re glad justice was served.
