Hudson Suspect Remains In Custody
The main suspect in the murders of Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and nephew will remain behind bars on a parole violation while the investigations into the slayings continue.
William Balfour, who was married to the Oscar winning singer/actress' sister Julia, was arrested last month (Oct08), following the grisly murders, and held by police on a parole violation.
He went before the Illinois State Parole Review Board on Monday (10Nov08) to determine whether there was enough evidence to charge him with a violation or murder.
He remains in custody after his current girlfriend claims she saw him with a gun "identical to the gun recovered by the Chicago police near the body of the murdered child" days before the killings, according to the chairman of the Illinois Parole Review Board.
Members of the panel ruled they found "probable cause to keep "Mr. Balfour until December 3" until a full review of the case and evidence against him will be reviewed again.
