Jennifer Hudson may testify in family murder trial

TRAGIC: Jennifer Hudson may testify in family murder trial

SINGER JENNIFER Hudson is reportedly on the witness list for the upcoming trial of a man accused of several members of her family.

The Spotlight hit-maker may have tesify against, William Balfour, 30, who is said to have killed her mother, brother and seven-year-old nephew, the Chicago Sun-Times has reported.

The Oscar winning star's mother, Darnell Donerson and brother Jason were shot at their family home in Chicago in October 2008, while her nephew, was found dead in the back of an SUV three days later. He had also been shot.

A court filing by prosecutors last week reportedly claimed that Hudson told investigators she'd known Balfour since childhood and had advised her sister Julia against marrying him before the tragedy.

Prosecutors in the case have yet to confirm whether Hudson will actually appear in court at the suspect's trial, which is slated to begin April 9.
