Chicago – Proceedings are set to resume Tuesday morning in the trial of the man accused of killing the mother, brother and nephew of the actress and singer Jennifer Hudson.

On Monday, Hudson — the prosecution’s first witness — broke down in tears several times on the stand as she remembered her family.

She identified the defendant, William Balfour, the estranged husband of her sister, Julia.

“None of us wanted her to marry him,” she said. “We did not like how he treated her.”
