hudson jurors*It’s now the third day of deliberations for the jury left with determining the fate of William Balfour, accused of murdering three of singer Jennifer Hudson’s family members.

Presiding Judge Charles Burns ordered the jurors to stay the night at a hotel after they discussed the trial behind closed doors following the closing arguments.

For two weeks, the prosecution brought 83 witnesses to the stand and presented circumstantial evidence.

With no surviving witnesses to the murder, the state was forced to draw conclusions based on the testimonies of friends and family members.

The defense only called to the stand two witnesses, detectives, in an attempt to suggest investigators disturbed the investigation.
