Jennifer Hudson Slayings Neighborhood

  This April 17, 2012, photo shows the former home of Jennifer Hudson and her family boarded up in the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago. About the only difference between it and thousands of boarded-up buildings in Chicago’s most notorious neighborhood is that Oscar-winning actress and singer Jennifer Hudson grew up here _ and her mother, brother and nephew died here, allegedly shot and killed by Hudson’s brother-in-law, a known gang member. When the trial of William Balfour begins Monday, April 23 for the 2008 killings, it will be an all-too-familiar story of death and violence in Englewood on the city’s South Side. (AP Photo/M.
