Jury ends day with no verdict
CHICAGO (AP) – Jurors finished a second day of deliberations Thursday without a verdict in the trial of the man charged with murdering Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew.
The jury is scheduled to resume deliberations Friday morning in the trial of Hudson’s former brother-in-law, William Balfour. Judge Charles Burns has ordered the jurors sequestered at a hotel to ensure they won’t view media coverage of the trial.
Balfour, who turned 31 on Thursday, pleaded not guilty to three counts of first-degree murder in the October 2008 slayings. The former gang member faces a mandatory life prison sentence if he’s convicted on all charges.
