Hudson Abandons Court Before Death Photos Shown
One day after taking the witness stand herself, Jennifer Hudson endured painful testimony today from a police officer who found her dead family members as the trial continued of the man accused of killing her mother, brother and nephew.
The Oscar winner sat next to her fiancé, David Otunga, in the Chicago courtroom as prosecutors shifted their focus to presenting crime scene evidence in the case against her former brother-in-law, William Balfour.
Hudson hung her head and closed her eyes as police Sgt. David Dowling described finding her mother's body sprawled in the living room with gunshot wounds in her back. The officer also described finding Hudson's brother dead in his bed of a gunshot wound to the head, with the sheets pulled up as if he had been sleeping.
