Jury selection begins for man accused of killing Jennifer Hudson's relatives

More than three years after singer Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and nephew were killed, jury selection will begin Monday in the trial of the man charged with the crimes.

William Balfour, the estranged husband of Hudson's sister Julia, is accused of fatally shooting Hudson's mother and brother inside their Chicago home in 2008. The body of Hudson's 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, was found three days later inside an abandoned vehicle.

Balfour, who was also Julian's stepfather, has also been charged with one count of home invasion.

    Because of a little thing called "due process".
    If one doesn't like it, one should move to a country that doesn't have it.
