Life sentence for Hudson family killer

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

A Cook County judge on Tuesday gave William Balfour three life sentences. Balfour was convicted earlier this year of first-degree murder in the 2008 killings. The actress and singer was in the Chicago courtroom for the sentencing.

The sentencing came after Circuit Judge Charles Burns denied a request from Balfour for a new trial.

Balfour faced a mandatory life sentence. Illinois does not have the death penalty.

Balfour was married to Hudson's sister.

Prosecutors contend he shot the family members in a jealous rage because she was dating another man.
