William Balfour Sentenced to Trio of Life Sentences

by at . Comments

William Balfour will never be a free man again. A judge in Chicago made sure of that today.

The 31-year old who was found guilty in May of killing Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and nephew was sentenced to three consecutive life sentences today, appearing inside a courtroom and maintaining his innocence until the end.

Hudson was also present at the sentencing.

During the hearing, a judge looked directly at Balfour and told him: "Your soul is as barren as dark space."

Balfour was convicted of triple murder, home innovation and residential burglary after he went into a jealous rage in 2008 because he believed his ex-girlfriend has received a present from another man.
