A jury has come in with a verdict in the trial of William Balfour, 31, who had been accused of killing the mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew of Oscar-winning actress and singer Jennifer Hudson.

"Balfour has been convicted on all seven counts against him, which include three counts of first-degree murder, one count of home invasion, one count aggravated kidnapping, one count residential burglary, and one count possession of a stolen motor vehicle," reports CBS News.

According to the article, "Balfour, the ex-husband of Hudson’s sister, killed 57-year-old Darnell Hudson, 29-year-old Jason Hudson and 7-year-old Julian King. Prosecutors believe that Balfour shot the family in a jealous rage because ex-wife Julia Hudson was dating another man. Balfour now faces a life sentence in prison."

Jennifer Hudson first came to the public’s attention as a contestant during the 2004 season of "American Idol."
