Washington (ANI): The prime suspect in the murders of actress
Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and nephew has been granted
permission to move to another jail in Illinois. William Balfour,
the estranged husband of the Oscar winner's sister Julia, was
accused of killing the singer-cum-actress" mum Darnell Donerson,
brother Jason Hudson and seven-year-old nephew Julian King.
Last week, Balfour, 27, pleaded not guilty to charges of
first-degree murder and home invasion, reports Contactmusic. His
attorney Joshua Kutick appeared at Cook County Criminal Court on
Jan 27, seeking Balfour's shift from the Stateville Correctional
Center near Joliet, Illinois where he has been held without bond
since his December (08) arrest.
And Judge Marjorie Laws granted Balfour permission to transfer
to the state's Cook County Jail, to ease the consultation process.
His next court hearing will be held on 23 February (09).
