Jennifer Hudson's brother in law arrested for the family murders

Jennifer Hudson's brother-in-law William Balfour was arrested Monday and will be charged for the murders of Jennifer's mother, brother and 7 year old nephew who were shot and killed in October.

"We have obtained an arrest warrant for William Balfour. He was released to Chicago detectives," Chicago Police Department spokeswoman Monique Bond said, adding that Balfour would be charged with three counts of murder.

Bond would not give details about what evidence led police to charge Balfour for the shooting deaths of Hudson's mother, Darnell Donerson, 57, brother, Jason Hudson, 29, and 7-year-old nephew, Julian King.

Nothing will bring back Jennifer's family but at least she can rest a little easier knowing the person behind the slaying is behind bars where he can no longer hurt another person. I personally would put this person to death for brutally murdering a young boy. I believe if an adult kills a child, they should be put to death immediately after convicted of the crime.
