Man jailed for Hudson family deaths

The man convicted of gunning down the mother, brother and nephew of Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson will spend the rest of his life in prison.

A judge in the US gave William Balfour three life sentences.

Balfour was convicted earlier this year of first-degree murder over the 2008 killings.

Actress and singer Jennifer was in the Chicago courtroom for the sentencing.

The sentencing came after a judge denied a request from Balfour for a new trial.

Balfour was married to the Dreamgirls star's sister. Prosecutors contend he shot the family members in a jealous rage because she was dating another man.
