Jennifer Hudson testifies against man in family murder trial

Jennifer Hudson has given evidence in the trial of William Balfour, the man accused of murdering her mother, brother and nephew back in 2008.

The trial began this week in Chicago, Illinois and Hudson was in attendance to testify against Balfour.

She broke down in tears on the stand (April 23) as she spoke about her immediate dislike of the man, who is her sister Julia's estranged husband, upon meeting him and subsequent warnings she gave her sister about not marrying him:

"I told her over and over again to not marry him. We did not like how he treated her."

The singer and actress also spoke about the last time she saw her family and explained: "It was my mother, my brother, my sister and my dog. I was so surprised. The whole family is here. That was the last time I saw them. Thank God I had the opportunity."

If convicted, Balfour will receive a life sentence.
