Defendant emotional as images of Jennifer Hudson’s nephew are shown in court
April 25, 2012
Reports came out of the Chicago Tribune that William Balfour had his head hung as low as it could go drowning in his own tears Wednesday as photos of Jennifer Hudson’s slain nephew flashed in a courtroom, but not everyone was there to see it. The empty bench in the fourth row of spectators spoke volumes: for a second straight day, the Academy Award-winning actress and her sister were absent from the courtroom as graphic images were shown on a large screen and autopsy reports on her nephew, mother and brother were detailed by forensic pathologists.
The “Dreamgirls” star and her sister — the dead boy’s mom — refused to see what jurors saw — an image on a large courtroom screen of the blood-soaked body of little Julian King, who had been shot in the head.
Hudson’s former Sister’s Husband, William Balfour is accused of executing the child after abducting him from the family’s home in chicago, following the killing’s of the singer’s mother and brother in 2008.
Balfour showed little signs of emotion while whipping what is said to be pretend tears from his eye’s with a tissue.
all my prayers to the hudson family..
