Hudson (along with her fiancé and sister) was inside the courtroom when the verdict was read and sources tell E! News they sat silently throughout.

Balfour did not testify on his own behalf, although the Oscar winner did take the stand early on in the trial and broke down in tears at one point.

In addition to the murder charges, Balfour was found guilty of home invasion, residential burglary, aggravated kidnapping and possession of a stolen vehicle. He faces life in prison.

I know this will give little consolation to poor Jennifer Hudson, but maybe a little is better than none. She is incredibly strong.

People should really think about the consequences of killing a human being. Once you do that, there is nothing left to gain or enjoy on the earth.
