William Balfour to Remain in Custody

by at . Comments

William Balfour, the murder suspect in the Jennifer Hudson family deaths, will remain in prison as investigators continue to investigate the triple slaying.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the Illinois Prisoner Review Board ruled this morning that there was reason to believe Balfour violated his parole.

Balfour's girlfriend had said that she had seen him with a gun that matched the murder weapon, according to Jorge Montes, chairman of the review board.

He also violated parole by being in places where drugs were sold, stemming from a June 19 drug arrest, but Balfour's parole was not revoked at that time.

William Balfour, who is not represented by an attorney, protested the evidence used to hold him. A full hearing on whether to revoke his parole is set for December 3.

Balfour, who is still technically married to the American Idol singer and Academy Award-winning actress' sister, Julia Hudson - the mother of Julian King, 7, who was slain - has been on parole for a 1999 attempted murder conviction.

After he was questioned by Chicago detectives for 48 hours, his parole was temporarily revoked following the brutal killings of Julian King, Jennifer's mother Darnell Donerson, and her brother, Jason Hudson, the morning of October 24.

Although he has not been formally charged with any of the murders, Balfour's current girlfriend also told police that he told her he had been involved in the killings of Donerson and Hudson, according to sources. Stay tuned.
