The long road to true justice has finally begun for Jennifer Hudson.
As reported earlier, J Hud's family killer will stand trial this week. Willam Balfour is being charged with murdering Jennifer's mother, her brother Jason Hudson and her seven year old nephew Julian King. This morning, the singer-actress got things started early by testifying on the first day of court.
While we knew she was testifying, having Jennifer take the stand as the first witness was an aggressive move by the prosecutors, to say the least!
Jennifer appeared to be crying as she recounted her relationship with her mother, stating how she talked with her mom, Darnell Donerson, every day.
She also testified that she and her family warned her sis, Julia, about how dangerous William was, explaining:
I told her over and over again to not marry him. We did not like how he treated her.
So sad … and equally as brave of Jennifer to get up on that stand and defend the memory of all those she lose.
Thankfully, this will be the beginning of the end of Jennifer's ordeal. We know nothing can replace a fallen brother, mother and nephew, but all signs point to this man paying for the crimes he committed. She can hopefully take comfort in that.
