Washington, December 4 : Jennifer Hudson's brother-in-law, the main suspect behind the family murders of the actress, went on a killing spree after having been jealous of his estranged wife's new romance, claim prosecutors.
William Balfour had been arrested on charges of first-degree killings of the Oscar-winner's mother, brother and his 7-year-old stepson, reports Contactmusic.
The family's attorneys, on December 3, said in a Chicago, Illinois court hearing that the accused had confronted the Oscar-winner's sister, Julia, over her renewed love life before the murder rampage.
Jennifer's mother and brother had been found shot dead on October 24 in their Chicago residence while the body of her nephew was discovered three days later in an abandoned car in Chicago.
The 27-year-old had been charged with three counts of first-degree murder, and had allegedly confessed to the crimes, as per the Chicago Police.
