Jennifer Hudson’s Family Murder Trial: Jury Selection Begins

Posted Monday April 9, 2012 1:13 PM GMT

It was a horrific tragedy when Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother, and nephew were murdered back in 2008, and today (April 9) jury selection will begin.

The prosecution and defense will be seeking to pick twelve jurors and six alternates from the 150 people pooled for the William Balfour case.

Given Ms. Hudson’s involvement in the proceedings, it may be difficult to find unbiased and neutral participants to sit on the jury.

Testimony is scheduled to begin on April 23rd, and Jennifer is expected to be present during the entire trial. She will likely be called as a witness as well.
