Chicago,IL (RushPRnews)12/03/08-After weeks of speculation and allegations, Chicago police arrested William Balfour for the murders of Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother, and nephew on Monday (December 1). According to the Associated Press, Balfour was arrested at Stateville Correctional Center where he was being held on a suspected parole violation.

Although he was arrested, a spokesman for the Cook County state’s attorney’s office, Andy Conklin, said that he had not been charged as of late Monday afternoon. He is expected to officially be charged, however, in the shooting death of Hudson’s family.

As previously reported by Yo! Raps, Balfour was previously only named as a “person of interest” in the case.
