 William Balfour — the man accused of murdering Jennifer Hudson‘s mother, brother, and 7-year-old nephew back in 2008 — has been found GUILTY.

The verdict was handed down moments ago after two days of deliberations.

Jennifer Hudson was present in court when the verdict was read.

27-year-old Balfour stands convicted of the triple murder after allegedly flying into a blind and jealous rage over a balloon gift for Julia Hudson, Balfour’s ex and Jennifer’s sister.

Prosecutors say Balfour thought the gift was from Julia’s new boyfriend and he snapped.

He faces life in prison.
